Les dieux contre la mer. Yeah, right. Also contains info about Min. Not essential unless you are very much into the Saharan Wet Phase, like me. Bianchi Ugo. I am a bit wary of comparing societies which are very distant in time and space, but YMMV. Te Velde — Seth as a Trickster Short paper which is basically a reduced version of the principal point of his thesis. It is only in German, and you have to pay quite a lot of money for it, but it is the key paper that presents Seth as a Storm-god with a positive, awe-inspiring but overall positive character.
Some of the invocations are pure gold. I mean, they are awesome even after being translated with Google Translate. A good review of the principal cult-places of Seth and the relative local myths. Nagel puts forward the hypothesis of the stratification of different mythological strands relating to the protection of the Solar Barque and the Osirian myth.
As early as Seth et Son animal — G. So bad,in fact, that could not finish it. Also, in French. YMMV, so I recommend reading before flaming. Mathieu ENiM 6 : These two texts analyse the different meanings and roles assumed by the two deities in the Texts of the Pyramids, focusing both on the non-Osirian and on the Osirian aspects of both and on their interrelation.
I would recommend to read them both, as they have so much complementary information. In French, of course. Mais qui est donc Osiris?

Ou la politique sous le linceul de la religion, B. Mathieu, ENiM 3 : This places the social and political order under the authority of a universal divine figure and in turn bolsters the figure of the king. The death of Osiris is also a schema for dynastic succession. Available from ENiM free of charge.
In French. This ended in reconciliation and equitable separation. The Osirian myth is a guarantee of Institutional process but also contributes to social peace, establishing the superiority of right over might. Available on Academia.
In French only. Rizzo ENiM 7, , p. This is as cringe-worthy as you can imagine. You are never going to see rain quite in the same way afterwards. Cringe in French with us by downloading the paper from the ENiM website. The latter is behind a de Gruyters paywall, so I only managed to read the abstract. This paper gives an overview and analysis of the Contendings and analyses it in terms of binary oppositions between the contenders. Some of the interpretations feel a bit forced to me like how is Seth a chtonian deity, FFS?
He sees the myth as a conflict between nature Seth and culture Horus , complicated by the importance that age and experience had in Ancient Egyptian culture. Here reported is also the theory by J. Spiegel published in that the true conflict is between Ra and the Ennead, as a reflex of the struggle between the King and the Nomarchs in the Middle Kingdom. This idea, albeit interesting, seems to have been discredited. There is a lot of Satanism infighting in the beginning, which might or might not be of interest, but past that you get a truly left-wing interpretation of Seth as a positive figure, a protector of foreigners, of common people and of the cosmos.
This paper is blessedly free of the implied xenophobia and patent homophobia of te Velde and reassesses the figure of Seth in the light of more recent interpretations of the role of foreigners up to the New Kingdom, without backprojecting from the Late Period material and criticises the elitist, pessimist views of some satanists, wihich have been put together with a mixture of Nietzche and te Velde.

This interpretation is benign towards Seth, avoiding the usual accusations of sexual violence. It uses the translation of the Negative Confessions that supposedly puts a blanket ban on all and any homosexual intercourse and cites M. Foucault, who supposedly said that sexuality is a modern construct, and then proceeds to say that there were no gay men anywhere in ancient times, not even in Classical Athens. It also repeatedly connects homosexual relationships with rape and domination.
In short it is a piece of Catholic crap from the Catholic University of Rome. This is a short paper dealing with justice and legal procedure in AE and in particular with the trial of Seth in the various versions of the Contendings.

It is possible, as Assman postulates, based on Flavius Josephus, that the memory of the expulsion of the Hyksos from Egypt was later re-assembled in the Biblical narrative of the Exodus, but so far the archeological evidence says that, even though they liked Seth a lot, they were polytheistic. Also, M.
