The chief mystery about ancient Egyptian religion is that the historical and archaeological record presents us with a fully fledged religion - so what were its origins? The book "Hamlet's Mill" proposed that all primitive religion began with astral lore and observation of changing celestial phenomena. This book could be described as a detailed demonstration of the validity of this thesis in the case of Ancient Egyptian religion as the author demonstrates remarkable coincidences between celestial phenomena and Egyptian religious practices and literature.
