Циклы египетской истории и три томоса труда Манефона Севеннитского (I)

Ладынин И. А.

The aim of the paper is to propose an interpretation of the concept backing Manetho’s treatise on Egyptian history (first half of the 3rd century B.C.). The present, starting, part of the article is intended to give necessary general observations on the Egyptian ideas of the world’s evolution (including the absence of cardinal difference between the mythological time and the real history) and its cycles, about the large historical periods reflected in the Egyptian narrative tradition (in the Royal Canon of Turin, in the literary texts reflecting the events of the First Intermediate Period etc.). Reasons are given to consider the evidence of the Classical authors (especially Josephus Flavius) and the Christian chronographers connected with the name of Manetho authentic to his original work.
