Ph.D. Thesis: The Cult of Re in the Old Kingdom

I am currently revising and expanding the thesis for publication. It appears here in its original, dissertation form with minor cosmetic changes in order to make it accessible to other scholars until the revision is complete. Posting it here is no different to it appearing in Theses Online, or UMI. I do intend to publish it. All rights are reserved.

I post it here because there has been an upsurge in interest in the Fifth Dynasty sun-temples over the last five years since I submitted the thesis. Perhaps my work will be of some interest to those who are studying this period.
