Kurzbeschreibung

19. Mai 2003 Complete
A comprehensive and authoritative illustrated guide to the deities that lay at the heart of Ancient Egyptian religion and society.

The author considers the differing manifestations, iconography and cult centres of the deities and their fluctuating popularity. He also examines levels of worship, from the king's formal rituals and festivals to popular access and personal piety. The accompanying photographs and drawings depict tomb paintings, temple reliefs, statues and other iconography.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent book 4. Juli 2003
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Richard H. Wilkinson, Egyptologist and Director
of the University of Arizona Egyptian Expeditions,
has written an excellent new book about the
gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt. His new book
is a complete, systematic survey of the ancient
egyptian pantheon.
In ancient Egypt, every city originally was the
city of a certain god, and many of them evolved
later to cult centres of the local gods. The author
considers the differing cult centres of the deities,
their manifestations, symbols and icons, and their
fluctuating popularity.
This book is recommended for everyone who wants
to know more about the ancient Egypt mythology.
Maybe it is even one of the best books about the
egyptian gods and goddesses. All the books I read
from Wilkinson so far are well illustrated and very
comprehensive. This one is rich illustrated, for
example with tomb paintings and temple reliefs.
His book has five major parts :
"Rise and Fall of the Gods" >> Evolution
"Nature of the Gods" >> Forms, Appearances, and Manifestations
"Worship of the Gods" >> Rituals and Mysteries
"Kingship and the Gods" >> Political aspect
"The Many Faces of the Divine" >> Catalogue
Other books of Dr. Wilkinson worth reading :
* The Complete Temples of Ancient Egypt
* Reading Egyptian Art: A Hieroglyphic Guide to
Ancient Egyptian Painting and Sculpture

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Plethora of Deities 2. Mai 2004
Von Michael Gunther - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Richard Wilkinson's latest book (he has previously written "Reading Egyptian Art," "Symbol and Magic in Egyptian Art," and "The Complete Temples of Ancient Egypt") presents the reader with an impressive selection of all the major gods and goddesses, and many of the minor ones, of ancient Egypt. Although hardly "complete" in the technical sense (Wilkinson discusses "only" 500 of Egypt's 1500 or so deities, and much more could be said about the ones he does discuss), the book is fairly "complete" in a practical sense: most gods that most readers want to look up, will get at least a brief mention. For example, you will find here the 24 Hours of the Day and Night, 12 (of 21) Gates of the Underworld, all 42 Gods of Judgement, and all 42 (hmm... there's that number again!) Nome Deities.
The book begins with twelve brief essays (4-6 pages each) on Egyptian religion, covering such topics as creation myths, manifestations of divinity, temple and popular worship, and divine kingship. The essays are thoughtful, informative, and up-to-date with current scholarship. I wish they had been longer, because they deserve to be expanded at greater length than the book allocates to them.
The rest of the book, some 180 pages, is devoted to a "Catalogue of Deities," organized by biological shape (anthropomorphic male and female, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects, and inanimate objects). This is a great idea, but it could have been taken even further. A visual index of shapes would make lookup much easier, and would only take an additional page or two. A name index is, of course, provided. Why not give a hieroglyphic index as well?
Going to the individual entries, Wilkinson generally provides information about the mythology, iconography, and worship of each deity. The deities are generously illustrated, with line drawings and photographs. Again, I would wish that many of these entries could be expanded, both in terms of discussion and in terms of visual iconography. This is not a criticism of Wilkinson; it just reflects the practical limitations of the book.
To summarize, Wilkinson's "Gods and Goddesses" is a very well-written, thoughtful, accurate, beautifully produced and illustrated reference on the religion of ancient Egypt. In terms of coverage it is somewhere between a handbook and an encyclopedia. I am very glad to have it in its present form, and I only wish that it had been much longer, since it is clear that Wilkinson has more to say about this subject than could fit into the covers of the present book. I would gladly pay double the price to have a truly complete encyclopedia of Egypt's gods from this author.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Comprehensive details about both major and minor deities 15. Mai 2003
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Compiled and written by Richard H. Wilkinson (Professor and Directory of the University of Arizona Egyptian Expedition), and enhanced with 338 illustrations (132 in full-color), The Complete Gods And Goddesses Of Ancient Egypt is a straightforward introduction to Egyptian mythology and iconography, offering comprehensive details about both major and minor deities. Organized into five general categories (Rise and Fall of the Gods; Nature of the Gods; Worship of the Gods; Kingship and the Gods; and The Catalogue of Deities), The Complete Gods And Goddesses Of Ancient Egypt is a first-rate, strongly recommended resource and reference for writers, historians, and lay readers curious about the mythologies of the Egyptian culture over a period of more than two thousand years.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Easy to Read but Packed with up-to-date Details 15. Juli 2007
Von Artemesia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I agree with the other reviewers - beautifully illustrated, mostly in full color. It is comprehensive yet particularly the first half of the book is easy to read in it's entirety. The first part of the book covers general concepts of Egyptian Religion and the deities. The second covers individual deities in detail.

I had been looking for a book on Ancient Egyptian religion and deities which was neither outdated in its ideas, nor sterile or boring, nor full of fluff, nor overwhelmed with dense detail, nor assumed detailed prior knowledge of anthropology, archeology or African/Near Eastern history and religion. This book is it. It is beautifully clear and explains how Egyptian views of each deity changed over time. It clearly presents for each deity what syncretism occurred (merging with other gods or the adoption of other gods' attributes) with time. It contains some of the most recent thinking on how the Egyptians might have viewed their own deities. My only minor negative would be that there are no references or footnotes in the text itself for the expert. However, within the body of the text, the author does mention which academics advanced which important concepts and coupled with the extensive and detailed bibliography arranged by subject matter at the end of the book, this minor gripe is assuaged.

The binding and quality of the book, its print, and illustrations are beautiful - it would make a lovely gift for someone.

Easy to read for both the beginner and the non-beginner in this area, but full of crystal clear detail for one who wants a good reference book even for more advanced students of religion.

4.0 von 5 Sternen About as good as you can get without a degree 1. Januar 2004
Von Andrew Raczkowski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
First off, "The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt" is not a book you want to read cover to cover. I love Egyptian mythology, but I really just use it for refrence when I need it. Some of the other sections on the origins of the dieties and such are great information as well.
For $30, it is an excellent book, although if you really want some truly in-depth (and hard to digest) material, more academic books might appeal, although they tend to run significantly more.
For its price, I think this book is an excellent introduction to the roles and mythology of the Egyptian dieties. Despite how my review sounds, I enjoy it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Slightly disappointed, but still educational 12. September 2012
Von Justin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
When I first got this I was intending to learn more about the Egyptian Gods & Goddesses from a mythological perspective. I thought that I was purchasing a book about the Egyptian Gods that were stories similar to the Greek Gods. I was looking for something purely mythological. If that is what you are looking to do, this book is not for you. However, if you are looking to study the Gods & Goddesses from a purely historical sense, then I would highly recommend this. Most of what I read is the historical origins, such as where each deity was created & by what group of people. There is a section that provides a catalogue of the deities which lists each deity, their area of origin, what they represented in the mythology, their appearance, & the most common form of worship to each deity. An example would be Anubis. It discusses that he was a funerary god, a possible origin of why Anubis is given the form of a jackal, & which Egyptian nome worshipped him the most.
