Summary
The 'Ka' has a central and complex role in the Egyptian religion at all times. As life forces and essential aspects of the sun god he appears in 14 named Ka-aspects (the group of gods of '14 Kas of Re ') in various sources. Since the time of Ptolemy VIII, the 14 kas of Re are occupied in the form of gift-bearers in the base area, with the female counterparts being assigned to them as the Hemuset goddesses. Although processions of the Ka genii and the Hemuset goddesses can be detected in as many as eleven sanctuaries over a period of about 250 years, they have not yet received the same level of attention in research as other procession types. Bettina Ventker goes into her new Contribution to the Soubassementstudien to the question of what the processions of the Kas and Hemusut are distinguished, how they set themselves apart from others and what specific meaning the genius in this context. For this purpose, all inscriptions, which are partly parallel texts, are transliterated, translated and annotated and related to other sources to the 14 Kas outside the Soubassement decoration. The texts, which have been fully analyzed for the first time, reveal an essential aspect of the multi-layered Ka term, which finds its expression above all in the soubassement: The Ka aspects as a dynastic principle guarantee the legitimacy and continuity of the secular and divine rule of domination
