Publisher Comments:

In this volume, a noted Egyptologist offers a concise, scholarly exposition of Egyptian belief in Osiris, god of the resurrection; other "gods" of the Egyptians; the judgment of the dead and the resurrection; and immortality. Also, the meaning of the afterlife for ancient Egyptians and its ramifications for Egyptian society.

Reprint of a volume originally published in 1908, which itself was the third edition of a work originally published in 1899 by Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co. Ltd., London under the title Egyptian Ideas of the Future Life, as the first volume in the series Books on Egypt and Chaldaea. Drawing on religious works including The Book of the Dead, the former keeper of Egyptian and Assyrian antiquities at the British Museum offers authoritative insights into the meaning of immortality to the ancient Egyptians and its ramifications for Egyptian society.
