An absolutley brilliant book. It's like looking through a window into a different world. All the details are there. It's so interesting to know how people used to live, (and still do in parts of the world!) A lot of research and effort went into the book and a very interesting read.

Egyptian magic= Egyptian religion 25 Feb. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
A wonderful book on how the people of ancient Egypt viewed the world around them and the ways they sought to cope. Religion and magic are intertwined in the ancient world, as were magic and medicine. A good book for both the casual reader and the researcher. Full of fascinating bits of information, yet easily understandable. If you're interested in life in ancient Egypt, this book belongs on your bookshelf!

Magic in Ancient Egypt 12 May 2002
By Kimberly S. Kenton - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this book very informative and interesting.As a practioner of Egyptian Magic and an Anthropology/Archology student,I found it easy to read,and it covers all aspects of Egyptian Magic. Ms.Pinch uses different texts to back up what she writes about.If you are looking for written ritual it's not in the book,but the information is there for you to write your own if you wish.I highly recomend this book to any one interested in Egyptian Magic.Ms.Pinch shows Egypt as it was a civilization which showed no distinction between everyday life and magic.

Great pictures, good writing, easy to understand 29 Dec. 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Pinch delivers a solid book explaining the practical aspects of Ancient Egyptian magic. The book is written so that both an academic and a "normal" ;-) person can easily understand the thought behind the magic.
Check out the terrifying love spell!

A fine survey discussing Egyptian techniques for magic, practitioners, and surviving magical texts 22 Jan. 2011
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
The revised edition of Magic in Ancient Egypt provides a fine survey discussing Egyptian techniques for magic, practitioners, and surviving magical texts. From medicine to how influences from early Egyptian magic survived to influence later societies into modern times, this provides a scholarly approach to Egyptian deities: though it's more likely to be picked up by new age collections, serious Egyptian history holdings also need this in-depth survey!

A great overview of the ancient Egyptian approach to magic revealed in down to earth terms. A must-have book for any student of the Egyptian Mystery Tradition and required reading for students of the Temple of Khem
