Realms of the Egyptian Dead: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This little work is one of the better, more dense pieces of Egyptology I’ve come across- one of the reasons I prioritized it in the new slew of works I have planned for the rest of 2018 into, probably, as late as mid 2020. Written by Alfred Wiedemann in the golden era of Victorian academic works, it is a broad overview of a few important topics within Egyptian pagan lore- especially focusing on the transition from live sacrifice to the use of clay figurines and similar things to lend a hand to the deceased, mummified Egyptian in the afterlife, as well as the topic of the self-contradicting nature of Egyptian lore; literally that within one burial two or more mythological tales scrawled on the tomb walls may tell stories which directly refute one another, causing legendary confusion.

It also contains a few bits about Egyptian mythology strictly related to Osiris and other deities, which is of decent import and quite interesting.
