This highly readable book covers Egyptian religion, history, and culture through its entire civilization. We are accustomed to history measured in decades or centuries. Egypt requires thinking in terms of millenia. There was not one monolithic Egyptian belief system; it went through profound changes over time; this book describes this evolution in great detail. Mackenzie includes many extracts from religious texts, folk tales, and historical documents.
Donald Alexander Mackenzie (1873 – 2 March 1936) was a Scottish journalist and folklorist and prolific writer on religion, mythology and anthropology in the early 20th century.
