Item description for Les Voies Processionnelles de Thebes (Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta) by A. Cabrol...

La vocation initiale de la voie processionnelle est de materialiser le cheminement et les pauses de la barque du dieu lors de certaines liturgies; ainsi prolongation du domaine divin, elle peut etre constituee d'une serie d'elements specifiques relatifs au parcours de la divinite (revetement du sol, statuaire - sphinx -, vegetation, murs de cloture) ou a ses etapes (amenagements ponctuels au sol, tribunes, etc.). Les specificites du calendrier ferial des divinites thebaines, dont, principalement, celui d'Amon de Karnak, font des voies processionnelles de Thebes un champ d'etudes d'une richesse sans precedent, et ce du Moyen Empire a l'epoque greco-romaine incluse. Ces voies, englobant le parvis du temple, ne sont pas strictement cantonnees a leur role liturgique; d'autres activites s'y deroulent qui entrainent des amenagements complementaires, concernant soit la vie culturelle quotidienne du temple (cultes populaires, activites oraculaires, magie, petits metiers, etc.), soit les expressions du pouvoir politique, de l'autorite de l'etat et d'une certaine realite economique et sociale (affichage de decrets, nomination de membres du clerge, activites judiciaires et application des peines - telles les executions capitales - etalonnage et taxes des marches, asyle, banquets de confreries, lieu de serments, etc.). La documentation rassemblee abordant ces multiples aspects fonctionnels des voies processionnelles thebaines est presentee suivant une approche specifiquement archeologique, etayee par les sources iconographiques et textuelles.
