Statement of the Problem. The nature of the revolutionary theological and religious movement instituted by Akh-en-Aton (Amen-hotep IV) of the Eighteenth dynasty (c. 1387-1366), has been variously interpreted and described. The archaeological campaigns begun by the members of the Mission Archeologique Francaise au Caire and Sir W. M. Flinders Petrie, and continued in this century by Norman deG. Davies and the expeditions of the Deutsche Orient-Gesellschaft and the Egypt Exploration Society, have provided extensive artistic, epigraphic, historical, religious and political evidence. It has become clear that the Amarna revolution was more then an event of international political significance in a context of extraordinary ethnic and imperial movements. [TRUNCATED]
