The Tebtunis temple library is the only ancient Egyptian temple library of which substantial remains are still preserved. It is by far the richest single source of Egyptian literary texts. This book contains a wide selection of demotic texts from its stores that have never previously been brought together in an edited volume, including a theological treatise; manuals on dream interpretation and one on birth prognosis; several lists of professions, plant life, and titles of cultic treatises; newly discovered fragments of the Great Demotic Book of Wisdom; and an astronomical text. 
Kim Ryholt is professor of Egyptology at the University of Copenhagen. He is the author of The Political Situation in Egypt during the Second Intermediate Period C. 1800–1550 B. C. and Narrative Literature from the Tebtunis Temple Library, both also published by Museum Tusculanum Press.
