Religion and Magic in Ancient Egypt, Paperback Book

Religion and Magic in Ancient Egypt Paperback


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.
