31. Sun, Moon, and Sothis: A Study of Calendars and Calendar Reforms in Ancient Egypt by Lynn E. Rose [Journals] [Aeon]
... reign for some thirty years, such holidays would be off by more than a week. Notwithstanding, the priestly order of Egypt stuck to their guns and retained their 365-day year, knowing full well that the 3651/4-day year and the religious year wouldn't be in alignment again for almost a millennium and a half- 1460 years: the Sothic period. (This term is the Greek transliteration of the Egyptian Sopdet, or spdt, ostensibly relating to the Star of Isis, Sirius.) To forestall any misalignments, the holidays- or "feasts" as they seem to have been called- were often regulated by the Moon, usually dating the first of each month by ...
32. The Calendar [Journals] [Aeon]
... , Sicily and Asia Minor. [7 ] Kazmann then gives the alignment of the earliest foundations. Of the thirty-two temples listed, twenty have errors above three degrees either South of East or North of East. This either makes for intolerant priests or incompetent architects or, otherwise, a change in the equinoctial alignment. The Myth Of The Sothic Period Many still hold the opinion that the eras of Egypt were dated by that wonderful mechanism known as the Sothic Period. [8 ] This concept required that, at the end of a 1460 year cycle, the star Sirius (or Sothis, if we can believe Egyptologists) would once again rise concurrently with the Sun on their ...

34. Ancient History Revisions: the Last 25 years - a Perspective [Journals] [SIS Review]
... on papyri, were then used, together with Biblical dates for Abraham, the Exodus and Shishak, to formulate more informed views on the antiquity of Egyptian history - and, of course, Egyptologists followed the natural inclinations of their predecessors in wanting to date everything as early as possible. Around the turn of the century, the concept of Sothic Dating, first proposed by German Egyptologists, began to be accepted as a means of estimating dates, otherwise unobtainable, for the end of the MK and the beginning of the New Kingdom (NK). Although no evidence for its use by Egyptians was ever found, Sothic Dating became incorporated into accepted Egyptological dogma after being embraced by ...
35. Horizons [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 'The Seasons Alter': Catastrophism in a Midsummer Night's Dream". A short and highly interesting article from Dr Velikovsky's own pen, "Shamir", argues that radioactive materials such as radium or uranium were known to the ancient Hebrews. A special supplement brings together some reprinted articles and short comments from Kronos staff on the problems of Sothic dating, the main focus being Richard A. Parker's "The Sothic Dating of the Twelfth and Eighteenth Dynasties" (from Studies in Honor of George R. Hughes, Studies in Ancient Oriental Civilization 39, Jan 12 1977). As the scholar who is most firmly associated with the modern theory of Sothic dating, Parker attempts to ...
36. Some Notes on Parker's "Sothic Dating" [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VI No. 1 (Fall 1980) Home | Issue Contents Some Notes on Parker's "Sothic Dating"Shane H. Mage 1. The main problem posed by the Illahun papyrus is its implication of a Middle Kingdom 365-day Civil Year and a lunar cycle with a month exactly equal to its present value. However, in order to establish this equality, Parker had to "correct" one of the dates given ( The Calendars of Ancient Egypt , p. 28 sec. 136 and p. 67 333). Although the proposed emendation is of only one day, nevertheless, the necessity of any emendation at all raises the possibility of error ...
37. A Review of Wells's Review of Sun, Moon, And Sothis [Journals] [Aeon]
... the El-Lahun lunar months are not even named. I am not using attested 30-day months: my focus is on lunar dates, and most of the time this does not involve month-lengths at all. My score on the lunar data is not 67%, but is over 90%. Quite aside from the lunar dates, I have a Sothic date to guide me to the most likely epoch. Wells also says that "there will always be multiple matches throughout the range." What "range"? We shall see that there is no range. What "multiple matches"? I have found only one match. Mine. Show me even one other chronology that fits ...
38. Sun, Moon and Sothis [advert] [Journals] [Aeon]
... Bibliography & Index The history of calendars is far from cut-and-dried. Almost every topic that this book addresses has long been the subject of heated controversy. Rose sees Hellenistic and Roman Egypt as of unparalleled importance in the history of calendar development. Even the Julian calendar had its origins in Hellenistic Egypt. Very likely, the Julian calendar itself was Sothic- that is, designed to follow the movements of the star Sothis (Sirius),and not just the annual motion of the Sun. Since the traditional Egyptian calendar of 365 days fell about one-fourth of a day short of the natural year, the ancients assumed that the heliacal rising of Sirius would move through the Egyptian calendar in ...
39. A Chronology for the Middle Kingdom and Israel's Egyptian Bondage [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the Exodus and Conquest", reviewed in our last issue. He has contributed earlier articles to the S.I .S . Review in this area, and is currently continuing his research into the stratigraphy and chronology of ancient Palestine. In an objective appraisal of Egyptian chronology, new foundations must be sought which do not rely on "Sothic" dating. Dr Bimson shows how these can be supplied by synchronisms with biblical history, and proposes a chronology for the Middle Kingdom of Egypt which provides support for Velikovsky's view that this was the time of the Israelite Bondage and the famine of Joseph. I: The Time of Joseph Introduction Modern Egyptologists have divided the history of Egypt ...
40. The Astronomical Basis of Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 1460 years begins when Sirius rises heliacally on the first day of Thoth, four years later Sirius rises on the second day of Thoth, four years after that on the third day of Thoth, and so on right round. Now Censorinus also adds that a hundred years before he wrote his book, Liber de dei natali, a new Sothic period had begun. Censorinus was writing in AD 239. One hundred years before that was, of course, 139 AD, and if you say that a Sothic Year ended at that time, then you can work out when that particular Sothic Year began by subtracting 1460 years. You find that you're back at about 1322 BC. ...
