The results are tantalizingly vague. With only a little effort, the information available could have been much richer. How dd the Egyptians worship their gods? Did the gods change with location and era? How did the changes effect how the temples were run and the rituals practiced? What was the role of Pharoah in the religion's day-to-day workings? In annual work? Was priesthood hereditary or could anyone aspire to it? Were all priests literate? How long did each priest serve? These are only a few of the questions that came to mind as I read. Hopefully, the books cited in the bibliography will have more answers.
Egyptologists may appreciate the knowledge within this booklet. Tourists, though, should make certain they have a copy so they can better enjoy their trip to Egypt. There is no finer journey than a cruise downstream from Aswan to Luxor. My wife and I have sailed upstream for our honeymoon and downstream for our 10th Anniversary. That second cruise was our favorite.
My only regret was not having read this booklet before sailing.
The Mythology and Religion of the Ancient Egyptians is outstanding.
