Description

By Richard H. Wilkinson

Worshipped for over three-fifths of recorded history, Egypt's gods and goddesses are among the most fascinating of human civilization. The lives of pharaohs and commoners alike were dominated by the need to honor, worship and pacify the huge pantheon of deities, from the benevolent to the malevolent. The richness and complexity of their mythology is reflected in countless tributes throughout Egypt, from lavish tomb paintings and imposing temple reliefs to humble household shrines.

This book examines the evolution, worship and eventual decline of the numerous gods and goddessesfrom minor household figures such as Bes and Taweret to the all-powerful deities Amun and Rethat made Egypt the most theocratic society of the ancient world, and made Egyptians, according to Herodotus, "more religious than any other people."

With hundreds of illustrations and specially commissioned drawings, this is a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the deities that lay at the heart of Egyptian religion and society.

256 pages, 338 illustrations (132 in full color). 8'' x 10 1/4''. Hardcover.
