    DescriptionFascinating book explores the underlying concept of the changeless as the basis of Egyptian religion, and how it unifies what scholars had believed to be an unrelated jungle of weird myths, doctrines, and practices generated by local cults. Relation of the idea of the changeless to moral and political philosophy, Egyptian government and society, literature and art. ." . . one of the finest elucidations of these materials that we have anywhere." -- "American Historical Review." Chronological Table. Index. Preface. 32 halftones.
