A Grammar of the Ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts is designed as a six-volume study of the earliest comprehensive corpus of ancient Egyptian texts, inscribed in the pyramids of five pharaohs of the Old Kingdom (ca. 2325–2150 BC) and several of their queens. The first volume, devoted to the earliest corpus, that of Unis, is based on a database that allows for detailed analysis of the orthography of the texts and every aspect of their grammar; it includes a complete hieroglyphic lexicon of the texts and a consecutive transcription and translation on facing pages. The grammatical analysis incorporates both the most recent advances in the understanding of Egyptian grammar and a few new interpretations published here for the first time.

Book Summary:

An authoritative guide to the Egyptian myths that sheds new light on an ancient way of understanding the world This survey of Egyptian mythology explores how the ancient Nile-dwellers explained the world around them. It delves into the creation and evolution of the world and the reigns of the gods on earth, before introducing us to the manifestations of Egypt’s deities in the natural environment; the inventive ways in which the Egyptians dealt with the invisible forces all around them; and their beliefs about life after death. Through his engaging narrative, Garry Shaw guides us through the mythic adventures of such famous deities as Osiris, the god murdered by his jealous brother Seth; the magical and sometimes devious Isis, who plotted to gain the power of the sun god Re; and Horus, who defeated his uncle Seth to become king of Egypt. He also introduces us to lesser known myths, such as the rebellions against Re; Geb’s quest for Re’s magical wig; and the flaying of the unfortunate god Nemty. From stars and heavenly bodies sailing on boats, to the wind as manifestation of the god Shu, to gods, goddesses, ghosts, and demons—beings that could be aggressive, helpful, wise, or dangerous—Shaw goes on to explain how the Egyptians encountered the mythological in their everyday lives.

Book Summary:

If you have ever wondered where the human obsession with the apocalypse comes from, if you ever wanted to know why the world did not come to an end on 21 December 2012, as prophesied by the Mayan calendar and propagated by paranoid apocalyptomaniacs, then Coup Dtat in the Land of Zep Tepi: A Progress Report, is for you. But why? Story Hunter out on a harebrained mission from Juba (capital of the newly independent Republic of Southern Sudan) to Lake Mwitanzige (named Lake Albert in colonial lingo) stumbles upon a legend somewhere in the depths of Central Africa. This will in due course turn out to be one of the most controversial discoveries to jump from the mists of mythological time into the twenty-first century. To be precise, on the border between the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda, a legend speaks about the disappearance of a tribe called Bachwezi into Lake Mwitanzige. This exposes information concerning goings-on in ancient Egypt around 1450 BC. Story Hunter and Buiteboers research reveals that the Bachwezi had fled from Egypt into the depths of Central Africa. They fled from Pharaoh Akhnaten, who had out of the blue imposed a religious singularity on the ancient lands that bore a multiplicity of gods, goddesses, demigods, and godlike human pharaonic rulers. The publication of this story in turn upsets a delicate balance of forces in the realm of the heavens. It speculates that the Bachwezi may have found, in Lake Mwitanzige, a portal by way of which to transmigrate and take the rebellion against a prophecy of their doom, expressed by the singularity Akhnaten, off the world. Did they make a quantum leap of faith, like Gilgamesh, the demigod king of Uruk, to postlife outerplanetary realms where the gods reside? After the Uganda discovery, the report accounts how while on a side journey through Mozambiques Zambezi Valley, where the Cahora Basa dam lies, Story Hunter is ambushed by a strange old man. He shows Story Hunter how, in precolonial times, the Songo people built a tower to reach heaven. This causes Story Hunter to be catapulted into an off-world realm where it becomes clear that all is not what it seems in Kosher, Vegan, or even Halaal in the postlife off-worldly realms. Will it turn out that the Bachwezi may in fact have staged an insurgency or are plotting a coup in the land of Zep Tepi? Volume 1 of Coup Dtat in the Land of Zep Tepi: A Progress Report exposes for the first time how a legend from Central Africa explains the extremely violent obsession humans and their religions have with catastrophes, apocalypses, and the like. Be it said as well, the pages of this report, hastily typed by Buiteboer in the course of one very hot South African summer night, also sheds light on the question as to why the world did not come to an end on 21 December 2012, as apparently foretold by the Mayan calendar. Did the Bachwezi have a hand in staying the course of the ticking time bomb hidden in the codes of the Mayan calendar? Will we meet RA and Quetzalcoatl at the other end of dawn?

Book Summary:

Mysterious Lands covers two kinds of encounters. First, encounters which actually occurred between Egypt and specific foreign lands, and second, those the Egyptians created by inventing imaginary lands. Some of the actual foreign lands are mysterious, in that we know of them only through Egyptian sources, both written and pictorial, and the actual locations of such lands remain unknown. These encounters led to reciprocal influences of varying intensity. The Egyptians also created imaginary lands (pseudo-geographic entities with distinctive inhabitants and cultures) in order to meet religious, intellectual and emotional needs. Scholars disagree, sometimes vehemently, about the locations and cultures of some important but geographically disputed actual lands. As for imaginary lands, they continually need to be re-explored as our understanding of Egyptian religion and literature deepens. Mysterious Lands provides a clear account of this subject and will be a stimulating read for scholars, students or the interested public.

After all, she's supposed to be producing an heir. As his secrets start to be revealed, she searches for a way to save him. But saving his life might lead him to a fate worse than death.

Book Summary:

A thought-provoking history of papyrus paper—from its origins in Egypt to its spread throughout the world—revealing how it helped usher in a new era of human history. For our entire history, humans have always searched for new ways to share information. This innate compulsion led to the origin of writing on the rock walls of caves and coffin lids or carving on tablets. But it was with the advent of papyrus paper when the ability to record and transmit information exploded, allowing for an exchanging of ideas from the banks of the Nile throughout the Mediterranean—and the civilized world—for the first time in human history. In The Pharaoh’s Treasure, John Gaudet looks at this pivotal transition to papyrus paper, which would become the most commonly used information medium in the world for more than 4,000 years. Far from fragile, papyrus paper is an especially durable writing surface; papyrus books and documents in ancient and medieval times had a usable life of hundreds of years, and this durability has allowed items like the famous Nag Hammadi codices from the third and fourth century to survive. The story of this material that was prized by both scholars and kings reveals how papyrus paper is more than a relic of our ancient past, but a key to understanding how ideas and information shaped humanity in the ancient and early modern world.

But when she reaches her destination, what awaits her there is nothing like she had expected. She was warned the gods wouldn't allow the Eye to be easily found. She was told she might crave its power for herself. She didn't take either warning seriously enough. Ankhesenamun will be tested until she breaks and only then will the gods decide whether she is permitted to wield the Eye. But even if they decide she is worthy, will the price be more than she can pay? The Amarna Age is set in 18th Dynasty Egypt in a world where the old gods have been worshipped for thousands of years and magic is a matter of belief. For readers of dark fantasy who enjoy an historical setting.

Spanning six centuries and as many dynasties, the turbulent era extended from approximately 1100 to 650 B.C.E. This volume, the first extensive collec- tion of Third Intermediate Period inscriptions in any language, includes the primary sources for the history, society, and religion of Egypt during this complicated period, when Egypt was ruled by Libyan and Nubian dynasties and had occasional relations with Judah and the encroaching, and finally invading, Assyrian Empire. It includes the most significant texts of all genres, newly translated and revised. This volume will serve as a source book and companion for the most thorough study of the history of the period, Kitchen's The Third Intermediate Period in Egypt.

Book Summary:

The origin of a saviour in the guise of a little child is traceable to Child-Horus, who brought new life to Egypt every year as the Messu of the inundation. This was Horus in his pre-solar and pre-human characters of the fish, the shoot of the papyrus, or the branch of the endless years. In a later stage the image of Horus on his papyrus represented the young god as solar cause in creation. But in the primitive phase it was a soul of life or of food ascending from the water in vegetation, as he who climbs the stalk, ranging from Child-Horus to the Polynesian hero, and to Jack ascending heavenward by means of his bean-stalk. from The Sign Language of Astronomical Mythology It goes unappreciated by modern Egyptologists, but it is embraced by those who savor the concept of a hidden history of humanity, and those who approach all human knowledge from the perspective of the esoteric. Gerard Massey 's massive Ancient Egypt: The Light of the World first published in 1907 and the crowning achievement of the self-taught scholar redefines the roots of Christianity via Egypt, proposing that Egyptian mythology was the basis for Jewish and Christian beliefs. Here, Cosimo proudly presents the combined Books 5 and 6 of Ancient Egypt, in which Massey discusses the primeval, iconic representations that link the Earth and the heavens, and ties the oldest understandings of astronomy with the mythology of the creation of the universe and humanity. From the symbols and myths of water, drowning, and floods to those light and darkness, blindness and sight and many others Massey shows how that imagery plays out in the Egyptian zodiac, and in turn indelibly influenced modern religion. Peculiar and profound, this work will intrigue and delight readers of history, religion, and mythology. British author GERALD MASSEY (1828 1907) published works of poetry, spiritualism, Shakespearean criticism, and theology, but his best-known works are in the realm of Egyptology, including A Book of the Beginnings and The Natural Genesis.

Book Summary:

The first, complete English translation of the ancient Egyptian Netherworld Books The ancient Egyptian Netherworld Books, important compositions that decorated the New Kingdom royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings, present humanity's oldest surviving attempts to provide a scientific map of the unseen realms beyond the visible cosmos and contain imagery and annotations that represent ancient Egyptian speculation (essentially philosophical and theological) about the events of the solar journey through the twelve hours of the night. The Netherworld Books describe one of the central mysteries of Egyptian religious belief—the union of the solar god Re with the underworldly god Osiris—and provide information on aspects of Egyptian theology and cosmography not present in the now more widely read Book of the Dead. Numerous illustrations provide overview images and individual scenes from each Netherworld Book, emphasizing the unity of text and image within the compositions. The major texts translated include the Book of Adoring Re in the West (the Litany of Re), the Book of the Hidden Chamber (Amduat), the Book of Gates, the Book of Caverns, the Books of the Creation of the Solar Disk, and the Books of the Solar-Osirian Unity. Features: Accessible presentations of the main concepts of the Netherworld Books and the chief features of each text Notes and commentary address major theological themes within the texts as well as lexicographic and/or grammatical issues An overview of later uses of these compositions during the first millennium BCE
