Author Sir William Matthew Flinders Petrie was an early, self-taught Egyptologist whose investigations and writings spanned part of the 19th into the 20th century. His little book of 98 pp., <The Religion of Ancient Egypt>, was resurrected and reprinted by publisher <Forgotten Books>. My copy is dated Sept. 12, 2011.
This book by Petrie remains a fine, brief and well-written route into the study of Egyptian religion which constituted a major part of ancient Egyptian culture. I strongly recommend it to readers of any age who wish to look into the subject.
I'm not an expert in this area, but have done some reading in mythology. He had some ideas that made me think and see things in a new way. I liked his theory of how the animal and human forms related. I think this would be best for someone like me with some background in mythology looking at how our ideas about mythology developed. If you want an introductory text, I would get something more modern that reflects our advances in knowledge.
