Egypt: Gods, Myths and Religion: A Fascinating Guide to the Alluring World of Ancient Egyptian Myths and Religion, Lucia Gahlin
5 Lucia Gahlin Egypt: Gods, Myths and Religion: A Fascinating Guide to the Alluring World of Ancient Egyptian Myths and Religion
Lorenz Books 242912 2001 0754805654 / 9780754805656 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Near Fine Condition Ancient Egypt was a mystical society with a broad and deep belief in the afterlife and the existence of many gods to appease and worship. Everyday objects and animals were deified and worshipped. Even the kings were considered a divine embodiment of the gods. The tombs, burial sites and artefacts are an enduring testimony to this fascinating religion. Less documented, but no less fascinating, were the beliefs of the ordinary people of Egypt: magic, rituals, festivals, taboos, superstitions, dreams and oracles reveal how far religion influenced and enriched their lives. Finally the book looks at a voice of dissent in the 3000 year period: Pharoah Akhenaten, who defied thousands of years of culture and history to revolutionise Egyptian religion to outlaw Polytheism and allow worship of only one god. 256 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Countries::Egypt; History; ISBN: 0754805654. ISBN/EAN: 9780754805656. Inventory No: 242912.

Decoding the Great Pyramid, Peter Lemesurier
6 Peter Lemesurier Decoding the Great Pyramid
Element 245528 1999 1862045887 / 9781862045880 Softcover Good Condition This masterful full color study of the prophetic powers of The Great Pyramid of Giza brings more than a hundred visuals to enhance and expand the text into a highly commercial examination of mankind's greatest heritage. From the times of the early Greeks, mankind has looked at it and wondered what mystery could lie for so long, waiting to be revealed. In Decoding the Great Pyramid, Peter Lemesurier begins by revealing the extraordinary facts of the Great Pyramid's siting and design in a number of detailed charts covering everything from its most obvious reflections to the most obscure of its measurements. Then, aligning present day understanding of Egyptian culture with an historical understanding of the socio-religious climate of the times, he interprets these details in a way that is as intriguing as it is realistic. In the second part of the book the author examines the prophetic aspects of the Bible, and compares them with the prophecies found in the Great Pyramid, discovering remarkable similarities to passages in the Gospels and from the ancient Christian prophets, such as Isaiah. The corroborative nature of the various biblical texts examined leave us breathless with excitement. To those of us who go searching through maps of esoteric knowledge looking for some clue to the unraveled mysteries of man's existence his revelations are significant. To those who look at great works of art and feel their significance ring deep inside, his work is profound Closed tears to bottom edge of first few pages 255 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
