Description

THE following pages are intended to place before the reader in a handy form an account of the principal ideasand beliefs held by the ancient Egyptians concerning the resurrection and the future life, which is derivedwholly from native religious works. The literature of Egypt which deals with these subjects is large and, aswas to be expected, the product of different periods which, taken together, cover several thousands of years;and it is exceedingly difficult at times to reconcile the statements and beliefs of a writer of one period withthose of a writer of another. Up to the present no systematic account of the doctrine of the resurrection and ofthe future life has been discovered, and there is no reason for hoping that such a thing will ever be found, forthe Egyptians do not appear to have thought that it was necessary to write a work of the kind.show more
