520    The research carried out for this dissertation deals with 
       the ancient Egyptian word h&dotbelow;3i, which encompasses
       the idea of "revivify" or "rejuvenate." This topic 
       materialized through a study of "mourning words." In an 
       attempt to assemble the references for "mourning a 
       deceased individual," I discovered that the word h&
       dotbelow;3i had been mistranslated. Actually, this term 
       had an association with jubilant behavior 
520    My methodology entailed collecting all of the available 
       sources that referenced the word h&dotbelow;3i and then 
       studying the examples according to the following divisions
       : genre of sources, participants in  h&dotbelow;3i, 
       location and time of h&dotbelow;3i, and significance of 
       the A 28 gesture associated with h&dotbelow;3i 
520    The ritual of h&dotbelow;3i encompasses numerous steps 
       connected to the magical act of physical and spiritual 
       transformation, namely, assembling, protecting, and 
       resurrecting the corpse. The ritual involved such actions 
       as dancing, singing, and clapping, even though it always 
       appears in a funerary context. The earliest clear vestige 
       is found in the Fourth Dynasty tomb of Debehni at Giza. I 
       suspect that the original form of the  h&dotbelow;3i 
       ceremony dates back to prehistoric times, although we do 
       not have direct evidence indicating as much. Predynastic 
       female figurines, with upraised arms, suggest the practice
       of a comparable rite of rejuvenation. According to ancient
       Egyptian religious belief, a person needed to have his 
       body intact in order to prosper in the Hereafter 
520    It was necessary to help the deceased in becoming a 
       spirit; it did not happen automatically. The rite of h&
       dotbelow;3i was a prerequisite in the resurrection process
       which magically enabled the deceased to reach the 
       Hereafter. In redefining the word h&dotbelow;3i, I have 
       discovered new information that contributes to our 
       knowledge and understanding of ancient Egyptian burial 
       rites and practices. The ceremony of h&dotbelow;3i  was 
       jubilant in character and celebrated the prospects of the 
       deceased in the Afterlife
