1. Sothic Dating: the Shameless Enterprise [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1999:2 (Feb 2000) Home | Issue Contents Sothic Dating: the Shameless Enterprise by Jess E. Lasken The defenders of Sothic dating are shameless in their use of sources and data. Take, for instance, an article defending Sothic dating by Leo Depuydt of Brown University, published in the leading American Egyptology journal [1 ]. This article reviewed the evidence for the proposition that the same Egyptian 365 day calendar was used without reform for approximately 3000 years ( 'the axiom of consistency'). It was intended to counter claims by Peter James [2 ] that Sothic dating had suffered a practical demise'. Depuydt ...
2. A Re-examination of the Sothic Chronology of Egypt [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 4 (Summer 1977) Home | Issue Contents A Re-examination of the Sothic Chronology of Egypt Ronald D. Long Reprinted with permission from Orientalia, Vol. 43 (Nova Series - 1974), pp. 261-274. For many years now we have accepted and incorporated the astronomical chronology of Egypt into our histories of the ancient Near East. It is wise, however, to be aware of the potential error in the interpretations and conclusions of the past and the possibility that realignment may be necessary. We still do not possess a final and unquestionable Egyptian Sothic dated historical framework. Recently, Read challenged the traditionally held astronomical chronology of ...

4. On Sothic Dating: Some Preliminary Remarks [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VI No. 1 (Fall 1980) Home | Issue Contents On Sothic Dating: Some Preliminary Remarks Lewis M. Greenberg The conventional reconstruction of Egyptian history is based on the assumption that the Egyptians regulated their calendar according to the heliacal rising of the star Sothis ( Spdt in Egyptian), or Sirius. This is known as Sothic dating, and it has become the pillar of support for reckoning the absolute chronology of ancient Egypt. In the words of Montet: "Were it not for the dates determined by the Sothic Cycle which provide a few fixed points of reference, Egyptian chronology would be a very uncertain field." The application of ...
5. The Sothic Dating of the Twelfth and Eighteenth Dynasties [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VI No. 1 (Fall 1980) Home | Issue Contents The Sothic Dating of the Twelfth and Eighteenth Dynasties Richard A. Parker Editor's Note: The following article has been reprinted from STUDIES IN HONOR OF GEORGE R. HUGHES [Studies in Ancient Oriental Civilization, 39 (Jan. 12, 1977), pp. 177-189] by permission of Professor Richard A. Parker. - LMG Recently Ronald D. Long has taken modern scholars to task for placing uncritical and undeserved reliance upon the earliest Sothic dates as firmly establishing the chronological setting of the Twelfth and Eighteenth Dynasties.(1 ) His point is that when these dates were first published ...
6. Chapter 3 Astronomical Sothic Dating [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS Charles Ginenthal, Pillars of the Past 81 CHAPTER 3 ASTRONOMICAL SOTHIC DATING "You can't ask us to take sides against arithmetic. You can't ask us to take sides against the obvious facts. . ." Sir Winston Churchill in The Wit and Wisdom of Winston Churchill by J. Harmos (NY 1995), p. 35 "If Manethon's list proves to be unreliable, and if conventional Sothic dating turns out to be a chimera, Egyptian chronology will need to be revised and reconstructed upon more secure foundations. And once that is done, the chronologies of all those neighboring peoples will also have to be revised and reconstructed. Move the Egyptians, and you must ...
7. Limitations of Astronomical Dating Methods* [Journals] [Kronos]
... which theoretically might have served as a powerful tool in setting up the broad outlines of ancient chronology is reduced to one whose sole value has been that of refining a few dates in the era of the 8th century B.C . and later where there is rather abundant independent supporting evidence for the chronology. Meyer's Theory of Historical Dating from Sothic Data In addition to eclipse records, other types of astronomical data have been used in attempts to date ancient historical events or eras. Most notable of these is the use of the so-called Sothic period.(12) The Sothic theory presumes that the Egyptians used a calendar year of 365 days, without interruption, as far back as ...
... of Egyptian history; only his mathematical figures are not respected because they are considered "absurdly high".[1 ] Historians, however, believe they have astronomical evidence to determine the numerical values for the basic plan. No records of solar and lunar eclipses were found in Egypt, as they were in Babylonia.[2 ] The Sothic period, a computation based on the rising of the star Sothis (Spdt in Egyptian), or Sirius, became the alpha and omega for the numerical construction of Egyptian chronology. The Egyptian year, for a considerably long period of history, consisted of 360 days; at some date in history, in a calendar reform, five ...
9. Astronomy and Chronology [Journals] [Pensee]
... the colossus of that king, broken, lying in the dust, visited also the temple of Medinet Habu. The king who built this mortuary temple received the name of Ramses III. It appears that Joseph Justus Scaliger (1540-1609) made the earliest attempt to date the Egyptian dynasties of Manetho in his Thesaurus temporum (1606). "Sothic period" calculation, or an astronomical clue to Egyptian chronology, seemed to give promise. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries there were made no attempts of dating the kings of Egypt. Pritchard's date for Ramses III's mounting the throne was changed by Rosellini (1841 ) to -1477 without showing reason for this; Champollion-Figeac (I 778-1867) ...
10. A Revised Astronomical Chronology for Egypt [Articles]
... as you will see, that qualifies him very well to speak about Egyptology which is his subject this afternoon, and it's on the revised astronomical chronology for Egypt." John Fermor: "The point of that introduction was that I speak to you without a shred of authority on the subject. Moreover, my subject is to do with Sothic dating, that's putting my head into the lion's mouth among Velikovskians because according to one chapter of the bible, as it were, Peoples of the Sea, we should hear no more about Sothic dating. However, I feel we should hear more about it. I had better explain very briefly what it is. It came out ...
