9780810829671: Who's Who in Egyptian Mythology

Who is Osiris? Which god was invoked by common folk to bring good luck? Who is the patron of childbirth? Such questions are answered in this updated and comprehensive dictionary of Egyptian mythology. This fascinating volume has alphabetically arranged entries on all the major gods, goddesses, myths, and themes of Egyptian mythology. In addition, there are entries on such topics as amulets, mummies, and pyramids; a chronology of Egyptian dynasties; a detailed introduction; and a complete annotated bibliography. Fifty pen-and-ink drawings by the author capture the spirit of ancient Egyptian art.

In reworking this edition, Bianchi has attempted to retain Anthony Mercatante's sensitive approach to the religion of ancient Egypt, but has modified his treatment to bring it into conformity with more recent academic opinion. In addition, the annotated bibliography has been completely revised to eliminate outdated works and incorporate recent scholarship. The result should be useful to student and amateur alike.

From the Back Cover:

In Who's Who In Egyptian Mythology Anthony S. Mercatante has given us a concise, easy-to-use dictionary of ancient Egyptian deities. There has been no comparable work in English for the general reader since the volumes published in the early part of this century, which are often outdated and misinformed.

About the Author:

Anthony S. Mercatante authored many books and articles on religion, mythology, and folklore. He was founder and Director of the Mythos Center in New York City, which is devoted to the study of religion as expressed in world mythology.

Robert Steven Bianchi, an independent academic who serves as one of two national re-elected American representatives to the International Association of Egyptologists, is President of the Egyptological Seminar of New York, and a contributing editor to Archaeology Magazine.
