CRYPTS: the "hidden places" of the Temple of Hathor at Dendera
A virtual trip to the most hidden and unknown recesses of the temple of Hathor at Dendera. Accompanied by the illuminating guide of careful scholars of the past and present, we will see how in Ptolemaic Egypt the taste for secrecy and mystery has influenced temple structures and religious texts.
Dark recesses and underground corridors, meant to remain hidden to the profane eye, will be illuminated for a short time to allow us to understand the liturgical and functional purpose of these environments.
For one time, even the famous "Dendera Light" will be illuminated by the "Light of Reason", while fully preserving the mystery and pathos of their enigmatic appearance.
