Religion and Magic in Ancient Egypt
Publisher: Penguin Books
Organized chronolgically, this work is an overview of ancient Egyptian religion, covering the period from 5000 BC to the 4th century AD. Since religion permeated most aspects of this society, it is considered in relation to wider themes, as well as specific traditions, such as temple worship, funerary beliefs and customs and the role of the gods. The book acts as an introduction to the subject, inviting the reader to enter a world of half human/half animal gods, death rituals, the afterlife and mummification, pyramids, magic and medicine.
