The impressive Temple of Horus at Edfu - 137 m long, up to 76 m wide and 35 m high - is the best preserved temple in Egypt. It was built from 237 to 57 B.C. and 'decorated' with a complex, intermedial system of inscriptions and paratextual images, whereby image and hieroglyphic design intertwine and make the temple what it is: an image of the cosmos according to Egyptian conception. This text and image programme extends over the entire temple complex, where the daily cult and the festival cult were performed, which took place on certain days or even over weeks in the course of the year. Since 2016, the Würzburg Chair of Egyptology holds the concession for epigraphic work in the Temple of Horus, this archetypal Egyptian sanctuary. The Horus Behedety project is the umbrella under which Würzburg's endeavors in Edfu are gathered.
