This vivid and authoritative reference book introduces us to the gods and goddesses of Ancient Egypt. It describes their characters and identifying features, the myths surrounding them, and their role in the creation of society. In ancient Egypt, the pharaoh was a human embodiment of a divine being, bridging the distance between the people and the gods. Elaborate funerary rituals for the pharaohs, offerings to the gods, festivals, taboos, superstitions, dreams and oracles reveal how far religion influenced and enriched the lives of the ordinary people. Maps, chronologies and artworks supplement hundreds of photographs in this masterly history.
