Religion in Ancient Egypt

£9.99

Product description

"Religion in Ancient Egypt" seeks to characterize Egyptian answers to universal questions - answers put forth in the "official" art, architecture and literature sponsored by king, priests, and nobility; and answers reflected in the personal practice of people who were not part of society's elite. The gods; the "divinity" of the king; myths of the origins of the gods and of the creation of the cosmos; personal religious experience and practice - these are some of the issues that the authors address. The reign of the heretic king Akhenaten receives special attention. This book should be of interest to students and academics of Egyptology, religion and anthropology. Contributions by John Baines, Leonard H. Lesko and David P. Silverman.

Hardback book in very good condition. Ends of spine bumped. Bottom corner of front cover bumped.
