Theban recension

In recension theory, Theban recension refers to the conjecture (Naville, 1886) that in the 18th dynasty (1549-1292BC) to 19th dynasty (1292-1189), of the New Kingdom (1549-1070BC) period (see: supreme god timeline), there was a major redaction, revision, or “recension” (Budge, 1904) to the Egyptian Book of the Dead, which was orchestrated by the priests or religious scholars of Thebes (see: Thebian creation myth).
