Prof. Dr. Jan Moje

Jan Moje works on local governors in first millennium BCE Egypt. His research for Topoi focused on matters of sociocultural interactions between these local rulers, the residence and the locals. He also analyzed the interdependencies between political-religious and social spheres. He examined the sources of their significance regarding legitimacy and the efforts made by local rulers to obtain the acceptance of the royal rulers of Egypt.

Moje’s research interests also include multilingualism in Graeco-Roman Egypt, Hieroglyphic and Demotic palaeography and funerary culture.
