The Ancient Book of the Dead brought to life! Throughout centuries, mysterious "books of the dead men" were often found buried alongside mummies and inside tombs by Egyptian locals, grave robbers, and archeologists; however, the inscrutable writing and cryptic contents remained a perplexing puzzle until the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, which enabled ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics to be translated for the first time. Soon after, scholars discerned that these grave books contained secret spells, incantations, and prayers to help, protect, and guide the dead during their journey through the underworld and to the afterlife. Here, in one volume and based on the classic editions from E.A. Wallis Budge, one of the most renowned Egyptologists of all time, this scholarly compendium delves into the history, motifs, and themes found in these afterlife companions before concluding with Budge's timeless translation of the Book of the Dead. Completely illustrated throughout, this volume brings ancient Egypt's vibrant past and secrets of the dead to life, enchanting and fascinating modern readers once again. -- back cover.

The Book of the Dead An Ancient Egyptian Funerary Text E. A. Wallis Budge FULLY ILLUSTRATED The Book of the Dead is an ancient Egyptian funerary text, used from the beginning of the New Kingdom (around 1550 BCE) to around 50 BCE. The original Egyptian name for the text, transliterated rw nw prt m hrw is translated as Book of Coming Forth by Day. Another translation would be Book of emerging forth into the Light. "Book" is the closest term to describe the loose collection of texts consisting of a number of magic spells intended to assist a dead person's journey through the Duat, or underworld, and into the afterlife and written by many priests over a period of about 1000 years. The Book of the Dead was part of a tradition of funerary texts which includes the earlier Pyramid Texts and Coffin Texts, which were painted onto objects, not papyrus. Some of the spells included were drawn from these older works and date to the 3rd millennium BCE. Other spells were composed later in Egyptian history, dating to the Third Intermediate Period (11th to 7th centuries BCE). A number of the spells which made up the Book continued to be inscribed on tomb walls and sarcophagi, as had always been the spells from which they originated. The Book of the Dead was placed in the coffin or burial chamber of the deceased. There was no single or canonical Book of the Dead. The surviving papyri contain a varying selection of religious and magical texts and vary considerably in their illustration. Some people seem to have commissioned their own copies of the Book of the Dead, perhaps choosing the spells they thought most vital in their own progression to the afterlife. The Book of the Dead was most commonly written in hieroglyphic or hieratic script on a papyrus scroll, and often illustrated with vignettes depicting the deceased and their journey into the afterlife. Table of Contents The Preservation of the Mummified Body in the Tomb by Thoth. The Book Per-t em hru, or [The Chapters of] Coming forth by (or, into) the Day, commonly called the "Book of the Dead." Thoth, the Author of the Book of the Dead. Thoth and Osiris. Osiris as Judge of the Dead and King of the Under World. The Judgment of Osiris. The Kingdom of Osiris. A Short Description of the "Doors" or Chapters of the Book of the Dead. Note.
