Serpent in the Sky

£70.99

Product description

This book explores the thesis of R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, lucidly developed by the West, that the builders of ancient Egypt had a far more sophisticated understanding of metaphysics and the laws which govern man and this universe than most Egyptologists have been willing to admit. It is a striking theory ignored for many years by unorthodox scholars. 'de Lubicz' has mustered an overwhelming, but complex, argument in favour of he scientific and spiritual development of the ancient Egyptians. It was assembled over a period of 10 years after a sojourn of 15 years in Luxor (1936-1951). His evidence is taken largely from the measurements and drawings of the stones and statuary of the great Temple of Luxor made by his step-daughter, Lucie Lamy.
Published in 1979.There is no DJ. The cover has some small stains and there is some sunning. Well illustarted with black and white drawings and photographs. The book is in good condition. Of interest to Egyptologists.
