Sinopsis:

Explore the riveting impact of magic on ancient Egyptian civilization, from birth, to love and marriage, to the rituals of death and the afterlife!

First published in 1899, Egyptian Magic is a classic work of one of the most prolific Victorian Egyptologists, Sir E. A. Wallis Budge. Budge presents a history of Egyptian magic and the details of its practice to help you uncover the Egyptian's distinction between white magic and black magic as you learn about magical artifacts, their identities and their applications in detail. These include jeweled scarabs and amulets, shown alongside useful illustrations and an abundance of information. Additionally, some first hand accounts claiming to have witnessed effects of the Egyptian occult are also contained in these pages for your intrique.

Egyptian Magic is essential reading for anybody interested in ancient cultures and their approaches to magic.

From the Back Cover:

In this classic work, first published in 1899, one of the most prolific Egyptologists of the Victorian era offers his renowned insight into the magical power names, spells, and talismans held for the ancient Egyptians. How did beliefs that predated the worship of deities come to become associated with controlling gods and goddesses? How did magical amulets ward off evil spirits? What role did scarabs serve in bestowing immortality?

The writings of E.A. Wallis Budge are considered somewhat controversial today because of his use of an archaic system of translation, but useful illustrations and an abundance of information make them necessary works for students of ancient civilizations as well as those of the evolution of historical study. This entertaining overview of the connection between religion and magic in ancient Egypt remain a vital resource today.
