Visibility, private religion and the urban landscape of Amarna

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This short paper is concerned with private religion at Amarna, broadly considered as religion beyond official temple cult. It explores the visual influences—largely in terms of visibility itself rather than content—that may have prompted and shaped religious action, behaviour and thought across the city, and the agents responsible for creating these. It asks how visibility had a bearing on how Akhetaten functioned as a living religious landscape.
