Although a belief in magic predated a belief in God in ancient Egypt, study of the religious texts has revealed that for the Egyptians, religion and magic were inseparable. Throughout their development into one of the most highly intellectual peoples, the Egyptians had a widespread belief in spells, magical names, amuletes and enchantments that gave them the reputation of being at once the most religious and the most superstitious of races. In this study, the author examines the close connection between magic and religion in ancient Egypt and describes many of the religious-magical ceremonies and practices, including details of spells, formulae and so on. This book covers all aspects of magic - dreams, ghosts, lucky and unlucky days, horoscopes and a great deal more.

From the Back Cover:

In this classic work, first published in 1899, one of the most prolific Egyptologists of the Victorian era offers his renowned insight into the magical power names, spells, and talismans held for the ancient Egyptians. How did beliefs that predated the worship of deities come to become associated with controlling gods and goddesses? How did magical amulets ward off evil spirits? What role did scarabs serve in bestowing immortality?

The writings of E.A. Wallis Budge are considered somewhat controversial today because of his use of an archaic system of translation, but useful illustrations and an abundance of information make them necessary works for students of ancient civilizations as well as those of the evolution of historical study. This entertaining overview of the connection between religion and magic in ancient Egypt remain a vital resource today.
