This book is a vivid reconstruction of the practical aspects of
ancient Egyptian religion. Through an examination of artefacts and
inscriptions, the text explores a variety of issues. For example,
who was allowed to enter the temples, and what rituals were
performed therein? Who served as priests? How were they organized
and trained, and what did they do? What was the Egyptians' attitude
toward death, and what happened at funerals? How did the living and
dead communicate? In what ways could people communicate with the
gods? What impact did religion have on the economy and longevity of
the society? This book demystifies Egyptian religion, exploring
what it meant to the people and society. The text is richly
illustrated with images of rituals and religious objects.
