9780140262520: Religion and Magic in Ancient Egypt

The ancient Egyptians believed that the Nile - their life source - was a divine gift. Religion and magic permeated their civilization, and this book provides a unique insight into their religious beliefs and practices, from 5000 BC to the 4th century AD, when Egyptian Christianity replaced the earlier customs. Arranged chronologically, this book provides a fascinating introduction to the world of half-human/ half-animal gods and goddesses; death rituals, the afterlife and mummification; the cult of sacred animals, pyramids, magic and medicine. An appendix contains translations of Ancient Eygtian spells.

Summary: The first complete historical overview of the beliefs of ancient Egypt--a world of oracles and seers, temples, and death rituals Every aspect of ancient Egyptian society--from education and law to medicine, birth, and death--was permeated by religion and magic, and dominated by divine life forces of the sun and the Nile.
