Development of Religion and Thought in Ancient Egypt traces Ancient Egyptian religion and thought from the beginning of the dynasties with Menes at about 3400 B.C. through the Roman conquest of Egypt in 30 B.C. Author James Breasted uses ancient texts, such as The Book of the Dead and the Pyramid texts, to trace the history of Egyptian religion, as well as the effects of other cultures on the Egyptians. The chapters, or lectures, are separated into both periods religious thought and by century. This literary and historical analysis is essential for any Egyptology student or enthusiast. JAMES HENRY BREASTED (1865-1935) was an American historian and archaeologist, as well as the first American to receive a Ph.D. in Egyptology. Breasted studied at North-Central College, Chicago Theological Seminary, Yale University, and the University of Berlin. Breasted is most well-known for his coinage of the term "fertile crescent" to describe the region in western Asia that is considered the cradle of civilization. He was also a teacher at the University of Chicago, served as the Director of the Haskell Oriental Museum, helped found the Oriental Institute, boosted the collections of several museums, and wrote several books on ancient Near East civilizations.

About the Author:

By James H. Breasted. Introduction by John A. Wilson

Review:

"A masterly study of the development of religion and thought in ancient Egypt. . . . No better attempt has been made to trace from beginning to end the leading categories of life, thought, and civilization as they successfully made their mark on religion, or to follow religion from age to age, disclosing especially how it was shaped by these influences, and how in turn it reacted to society."—E. O. James



"A monument and a classic. . . . In this book we find the impact of nature upon religion in the abounding land of Egypt; the first skepticism and questionings of the system; the search for social justice as an answer to social woes, and the consequent seizure of royal privileges by lesser men; the attempt to assert monotheism; humble trust in a forgiving god; and the final triumph of priestly rule over religion. Because it is remote from us in time and place, we can look at it in detachment. And yet, in its cadences and in its stresses, it is our own story."—John A. Wilson, from the Introduction
