Book by Hinds, Kathryn
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
In this volume in the Life in Ancient Egypt series, Hinds introduces the ancient Egyptians' spiritual beliefs during the New Kingdom period, noting that they didn't think of religion as a concept and had no word to describe it: gods were "too interwoven with every aspect of life to be separated out." Chapters explore primary dieties, temple life and priests; and women's participation in religion, prayer, and holidays; and how religion was incorporated into life's passages, such as birth and death. Hinds supports the smoothly flowing text with illuminating details and excerpts from a variety of sources. Handsome color photos of Egyptian sites and artifacts greatly enhance the text. A final note briefly covers Egyptian dynasties and dates, but a time line would have been welcome. A glossary, a bibliography, and source notes are appended. Gillian Engberg
