Одно коптское предание в «Сокращении диковин» (независимая общественная память вне государственного влияния)

Диалог со временем. 2020. № 72. С. 255-270.
Немировский А. А., Банщикова А. А.

The work offers a case study of the phenomenon of independent people’s historical memory (outside of the influence of the state) which is the result of interference of a multitude of individual, partially reflected choices, what exactly and how to transfer from the information about the past that you’ve got. It deals with a Coptic legend (known through Arabic reception) about the ancient Egyptian king «Malius» and his successor «Horma», in which legend a tradition about Akhenaten, Amarna Reformation and its collapse is recognized. This tradition was transmitted independently of the state and specialized institutions for 2000 years and shows dynamics of the reflected evaluations in Egyptians’ national memory.The work offers a case study of the phenomenon of independent people’s historical memory (outside of the influence of the state) which is the result of interference of a multitude of individual, partially reflected choices, what exactly and how to transfer from the information about the past that you’ve got.
