Format: Paperback
Dr. Christian Jacq is a noted Egyptologist who draws upon his researches emanating from a meeting with a family of snake charmers to explore the world of ancient Egyptians, a people permeated with magic controlling every aspect of their life -- an influence which has survived down to the present day. In Magic And Mystery In Ancient Egypt, Jacq draws on both folklore and hieroglyphic texts to reveal the potency and all-pervading influence of this ancient lore. Entertainingly written, Jacq takes the reader on a journey into the ultimate mysteries as he describes a world in which ever living thing, every rock and stream, and every action of mankind was governed by ritual. This truly "reader friendly" work shares with modern readers a very ancient legacy for metaphysical studies and students of Egyptology an very accessible and informative treatise.

Format: Paperback
It is so beautiful and artistic the history of ancient egyptian magic and history,... I enjoy reading it, I found it very informative on the history of ancient egyptian mistery and magic. It is a general information but abundant and the way it is explain is very easy to understand... Although it is not a book about a specific magick or occult related so for those whose searching for the layed description about egyptian magick ingridients and so on this is not it,... but it gives a beautiful history and illustration of ancient egyptian. For those who is searching for information of such, get this book you'll enjoy it,... After reading this book I understand more the way why the god and goddeses are so vital in ancient egyptian,... I also like the way Christian put it all,..I especially enjoyed the epilogue,.....
