This vivid and authoritative reference book introduces us to the
gods and goddesses of Ancient Egypt. It describes their characters
and identifying features, the myths surrounding them, and their
role in the creation of society. In ancient Egypt, the pharaoh was
a human embodiment of a divine being, bridging the distance between
the people and the gods. Elaborate funerary rituals for the
pharaohs, offerings to the gods, festivals, taboos, superstitions,
dreams and oracles reveal how far religion influenced and enriched
the lives of the ordinary people. Maps, chronologies and artworks
supplement hundreds of photographs in this masterly history.
