Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The "Egyptian variant" plays an important role in the intercultural debate between the Islam of the Mediterranean countries and the culture of the German Enlightenment period. In the 18th century there was great interest in Egypt in German-speaking countries. It is precisely this interest that forms the background and starting point for three works on which the study concentrates: a travelogue, C. Niebuhr's "Travelogue to Arabia and the surrounding countries, a popular scientific document of a historical-geographical nature", the anonymous work "Egyptian peculiarities from ancient times and modern times ", FE Rambachs," Aylo and Dschadina or the pyramids ".
