Oh, no, I'm asking neither, perhaps I employed the wrong terminology.

No, I realise that Recon's, by definition, tend to ignore such things, and derivatives such as Thelema have little place in the current practice of reconstruction.

What I'm asking, on record, is what the perceived 'beginning' of Kemetic Reconstruction would be, if not the start of HoN, and if there are any examples of movements which may have inspired, influenced or led up to that nodal moment. Perhaps this is a contentious issue, though...

I'm not conflating those movements, simply asking if anybody infers any lineage with other movements/or even texts, that aren't as high profile as HoN. These things have to be asked in order to be ruled out, etc. Are there any influential moments which may have inspired people towards reconstruction, completely independently of HoN? That kind of thing also applies.

In response, Hornung's work is interesting but not nearly as comprehensive as it needs to be on the subject, I felt. So, yes, I've read it, but thanks for the link Smiley

P.s, sometimes, just to fill out perceived gaps I have to ask basic/obvious questions. My wording wasn't clear, but all I'm trying to ascertain is what the perceived beginning of current Kemetic Recon movements is, if not HoN. If it does largely begin with HoN, then fine, I just desired some potential alternative perspectives on the issue, even if a little late in the game, so to speak.

Those have very little at all to do with the historical Egypt, and thus have no place in reconstruction.  Other Egyptian-influenced pagans may be influenced by same - consider Thelema, which is Golden Dawn-linked Egyptiana originating in the works/channelings of Crowley - but those are not reconstructions.

(That you are asking this question suggests to me that you are somewhat unclear on what "reconstruction" means in a pagan religious context; is this correct?  Or are you asking whether claimed recons are fuzzy on the concept?)

This reviews a book by an Egyptologist on the whole "sekrit mystical special Egypt" phenomenon:
