Description

This beautifully illustrated book takes us on one of the greatest initiatory journeys: from death to rebirth, through the labyrinth of the hereafter, as was documented by the Ancient Egyptians in their Book of the Dead and other ritual texts. Ruth Schumann-Antelme, who carried out a number of journeys to Upper Egypt, particularly with Christiane Desroches Noblecourt, offers a detailed account of the immortality rites of Pharaonic Egypt. Having focused on the texts covering the Embalming ritual and the Opening of the Mouth ceremony, she returns to and explains the Book of the Dead, chapter by chapter. The entire work is brought to life by the numerous illustrations of Stéphane Rossini, an Ancient Egyptian iconography specialist. A beautiful work to offer as an introduction to the spirituality of Pharaonic Egypt, which was the first to tell us, through the myth of Isis and Osiris, that love is stronger than death. TABLE OF CONTENTS• The dawn of the kingdom• The great Neter• The gods• The legend of Osiris• The context of Ancient Egypt• Transformation of death in a latent Osiris• The restoration of the faculties at death• The components of the person• The funeral ceremony• Return to the universal bosom• Coming forth by day• Magical self-defence• Transformation and solarisation of death• The metamorphoses I• Magical insertion of the transfigured in the cosmic order• The righteous explore the cycle of the hereafter• Accompanying the deceased and geography of the hereafter• The kingdom of Osiris• Additional chapters: Preservation of the body and soul of the deceased - destruction of the world and cosmic renewal - The calendar - The awakening of Osiris• The cosmos of the Pharaohs• The two motors of time• The mysteries of Sothis
