Book Description

19 May 2003 Complete
A comprehensive and authoritative illustrated guide to the deities that lay at the heart of Ancient Egyptian religion and society. It examines the evolution, worship and eventual decline of a huge pantheon, from minor figures such as Bas, Babi, Ba-Pef and Taweret to the all-powerful Osiris, Amun, Hathor, Isis and Re. The author considers the differing manifestations, iconography and cult centres of the deities and their fluctuating popularity. He also examines levels of worship, from the king's formal rituals and festivals to popular access and personal piety. The accompanying photographs and drawings depict tomb paintings, temple reliefs, statues and other iconography.

5.0 out of 5 stars The complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt 24 May 2003
Format:Hardcover
On opening the cover of this Book,I little realised it would be so hard to put down again, seduced by lavish illustrations and a very understandable format of what is after all a very diverse, though interesting subject, yes there are many other books on the market covering this subject, we can all argue about Egyptian religion,but I feel this book is a sound fountation for anybody with that initial interest in this subject,It makes a worthy addition to the rest of the Thames and Hudson series, if you only ever buy one book on Egyptian religion look no further

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW !!! 22 April 2012
By Terri
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my 16 year old as a Christmas present. She LOVED it, but then again she is Egypt-mad !!
The book is packed full of information, text, hieroglyphs, pictures. Would recommend to anyone who is the least bit interested in Egyptian history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good reference book 24 May 2009
By JR
Format:Hardcover
A well-produced, informative book. This is a good reference book which keeps rigidly to its brief without speculating on any of the populist stories which may be told by egyptology guides.
