Akhenaten & His Strange New Religion of Sunlight

  • Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Opera League of Los Angeles 135 North Grand Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)


Who was Akhenaten--a philosopher or a power-hungry heretic? In this lecture, Egyptologist Kara Cooney will reveal the history behind this controversial ancient Egyptian pharaoh. She will discuss why he moved Egypt's capital city from Thebes to his newly built city of Akhetaten and explore why he cast off traditional ancient Egyptian religious beliefs and introduced his strange new religion of sunlight.
