    DescriptionThe gods were everywhere in Ancient Egypt, including in the person of the Pharoah, considered to be a living god and son of the divine. Using as his sources the Egyptian texts and the testimony of classical authors, Serge Sauneron illuminates the role of the priesthood in Ancient Egypt. He recreates the system of thought of one of the great civilizations of antiquity, addressing such topics as priestly functions, the world of temples, holy festival, tombs and pyramids.
