The Midnight Sun

£40.00

Product description

Signed by the author, with no other messages or inscriptions. First edition, 2004. Light scratches on the covers, otherwise excellent condition.

In this ground-breaking study of the Egyptian creation myth, Alan F. Alford argues that the creator-god was supreme in ancient Egypt, and that his death and rebirth signified the death and rebirth of the cosmos. This task of the sun-god and the pharaoh was to re-enact this momentous crisis in the universe and thereby rejuvenate the cosmic order.
