About "Religion in Ancient Egypt"
Religion in Ancient Egypt seeks to characterize Egyptian answers to universal questions - answers put forth in the official art, architecture and literature sponsored by king, priests, and nobility; and answers reflected in the personal practice of people who were not part of society's elite. The gods; the divinity of the king; myths of the origins of the gods and of the creation of the cosmos; personal religious experience and practice - these are some of the issues that the authors address. The reign of the heretic king Akhenaten receives special attention.;This book should be of interest to students and academics of Egyptology, religion and anthropology.
