At first glance, Egyptological genre research presents itself as a conglomerate of contradictory research perspectives. Theoretical considerations of the term “genre” as well as practical studies are based on either a narrow or a broad understanding of literature, diachronic studies stand alongside ones that only consider texts from selected periods, and text-immanent methods compete with approaches, in which the definition of genre is based on extratextual factors. This impression of disparity within Egyptological genre research is relativised after intensive study of the various thinking models. In the course of the following paper, similarities between these models will be discussed in light of a method developed in the field of literary studies and points of contact will be established. The systematisation of approaches aims to develop a complex genre term that can be employed as a basis for future research.

The volume explores the hitherto uncharted late medieval religious landscape of Northern Germany, from 13th-century Helfta to the 15th-century Lüneburg convents. The mystical and devotional writing of Northern Germany is contextualised through chapters on the Netherlands, Scandinavia and East Prussia. The seminal influence of the liturgy on these texts and their transmission is revealed in the creative interplay of Latin and Low German. Through the individual chapters and their appendices, which also contain translations into English, the reader can access a wealth of texts produced by communities of religious and lay women who write learnedly in Latin and fervently in Low German. Together, the chapters and appendices reveal a fascinating regional "mystical culture" which also reverberated across Northern Europe.

Herausforderungen eines kulturwissenschaftlichen Paradigmenwechsels in den Altertumswissenschaften
Für die ägyptologische Methodik und Didaktik stellt der gegenwärtige kulturwissenschaftliche Paradigmenwechsel eine besondere Herausforderung dar. In 38 Beiträgen werden die vielfältigen epistemologischen Schwierigkeiten, aber auch die Chancen diskutiert, die sich aus dem kulturwissenschaftlichen Paradigmenwechsel ergeben. Aus dem Gespräch von Ägyptologie, Kultur-, Geschichts- und Religionswissenschaft, Linguistik, Archäologie und Museologie ergeben sich neue Perspektiven. Nicht zuletzt gelingt es den Beiträgen, Impulse für die Entwicklung fachübergreifender Fragestellungen der verschiedensten kulturwissenschaftlichen Diskurse zu geben.
