This updated and fully revised second edition contains a new selection of plates and illustrations. The book traces the evolution of religious beliefs and practices within the historical and poltitical contexts of the main periods of Egypt's civilization. It shows how historical and political events influenced state cults, temple rituals and frnerary apractices and emphasises how religion permeated most aspects of everyday life, including law, medicine and education. The book describes how some religious customs have even survived, in different forms, until the present day. Contains extensive bibliographies of primary and secondary sources.

Rosalie David is a reader in Egyptology at the University of Manchester and the keeper of Egyptology at the Manchester University Museum.

Review:

“A readable introduction to the main themes—creation myths and solar beliefs, priesthood and ritual, Osiris and the theology of kingship, architecture and iconography—set into the context of Egyptian history as it develops over two and a half millennia.”  —Expository Times
