Violence in the Service of Order: The Religious Framework for Sanctioned Killing in Ancient EgyptKerry Muhlestein 2011 © BAR Publishing
This book is hoped to be only the beginning of explorations of the ancient Egyptian notion of upholding Order (Ma'at) through violence. Because of the scope of the topic, this study is limited to the most extreme measure of violence perpetrated in the service of Order: sanctioned killing. This study explores texts that affirm the proper occasions for such killings, and the religious framework behind these actions.
