Egyptian hieroglyphs Part 3

egyptian hieroglyphs

As described last week, writing in Hieroglyphs was a fairly long process. So-called Hieratic is a simplification of the ancient Egyptians’ script to allow for faster writing. It is believed to have developed simultaneously with the development of Hieroglyphs.

Unlike Hieroglyphs, Hieratic was always written from left to right. Hieroglyphs could be read from various directions. To ensure correct, reading they faced the direction in which they were supposed to be read. To the ancient Egyptians it was more important that the “texts” appeared beautiful.

Hieratic was used both for religious texts and for more common purposes like private documents.

Next week we will tell you more about a further development: Demotic.
