Jungian psychoanalyst Schweizer offers this glimpse into the ancient Egyptian psyche via the daily journey of Re, the sun god, into the depths of the underworld and back. The texts and images of the Amduat are closely analyzed by the author and are used to convey the beliefs of this highly influential ancient society in which our own modern society is clearly reflected. The Amduat has been closely studied for thousands of years and has provided inspiration for other religions’ illustration of the afterlife including Christianity. This study is intended for those engaged in the study of Egyptology. Annotation å©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
