A most thorough, most useful treatment of the gods of Ancient Egypt. Presents practically everything known about the high gods, the local gods, demigods, demons and mythological figures of Khem. Dr. Budge provides full information on the origins of the ancient religion; its peculiarly Egyptian aspects; evolution of cults, rites and gods; the priesthoods; the heretical aberration of Ikhnaten and the Aten cult; the cult of Osiris; the Book of the Dead and its rites; the sacred animals and birds; heaven and hell, and much secret wisdom that has been discovered hidden in mummy cases or written on tomb walls.
