Egyptian Book of the Dead by Sir Ernest Alfred Wallace Budge

Book Description

"The Book of the Dead" is a unique collection of funerary texts from a wide variety of sources, dating from the fifteenth to the fourth century BC. Consisting of spells, prayers and incantations, each section contains the words of power to overcome obstacles in the afterlife. The papyruses were often left in sarcophagi for the dead to use as passports on their journey from burial, and were full of advice about the ferrymen, gods and kings they would meet on the way. Offering valuable insights into ancient Egypt, "The Book of the Dead" has also inspired fascination with the occult and the afterlife in recent years.
