Kurzbeschreibung

14. Juni 2014
The Book of the Dead is an ancient Egyptian funerary text, used from the beginning of the New Kingdom (around 1550 BCE) to around 50 BCE. The original Egyptian name for the text, transliterated is translated as "Book of Coming Forth by Day". Another translation would be "Book of emerging forth into the Light". The text consists of a number of magic spells intended to assist a dead person's journey through the Duat, or underworld, and into the afterlife.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Sir Ernest Alfred Thompson Wallis Budge (27 July 1857 – 23 November 1934) was an English Egyptologist, Orientalist, and philologist who worked for the British Museum and published numerous works on the ancient Near East. He made numerous trips to Egypt and the Sudan on behalf of the British Museum to buy antiquities, and helped it build its collection of cuneiform tablets, manuscripts, and papyri. He published many books on Egyptology, helping to bring the findings to larger audiences. In 1920 he was knighted for his service to Egyptology and the British Museum. E.A. Wallis Budge was born in 1857 in Bodmin, Cornwall, to Mary Ann Budge, a young woman whose father was a waiter in a Bodmin hotel. Budge's father has never been identified. Budge left Cornwall as a boy, and eventually came to live with his maternal aunt and grandmother in London. Budge became interested in languages before he was ten years old, but left school at the age of twelve in 1869 to work as a clerk at the retail firm of W.H. Smith, which sold books, stationery and related products. (It continues to do so.) In his spare time, he studied Hebrew and Syriac with the aid of a volunteer tutor named Charles Seeger. Budge became interested in learning the ancient Assyrian language in 1872, when he also began to spend time in the British Museum. Budge's tutor introduced him to the Keeper of Oriental Antiquities, the pioneer Egyptologist Samuel Birch, and Birch's assistant, the Assyriologist George Smith. Smith helped Budge occasionally with his Assyrian. Birch allowed the youth to study cuneiform tablets in his office and obtained books for him from the British Library of Middle Eastern travel and adventure, such as Sir Austen Henry Layard's Nineveh and Its Remains. From 1869 to 1878, Budge spent his free time studying Assyrian, and during these years, often spent his lunch break studying at St. Paul's Cathedral. John Stainer, the organist of St. Paul's, noticed Budge's hard work, and met the youth. He wanted to help the working-class boy realize his dream of becoming a scholar. Stainer contacted W.H. Smith, a Conservative Member of Parliament, and the former Liberal Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone, and asked them to help his young friend. Both Smith and Gladstone agreed to help Stainer to raise money for Budge to attend Cambridge University. Budge studied at Cambridge from 1878 to 1883. His subjects included Semitic languages: Hebrew, Syriac, Ethiopic and Arabic; -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

3.0 von 5 Sternen At least the price is right... 23. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
It's a given that serious egyptologists will roll their eyes at anything by Budge (there's a great moment at the beginning of the film "Stargate" where James Spader's character makes a quip about Budge's books).
However, if you are interested in 19th-century occultists (Blavatsky, Crowley, etc) then you probably should have this translation on your shelf next to a more modern one, because Budge is a primary source of their ideas about Egyptian gods and religion (which are interesting in their own right, though not historically accurate or scholarly). And again, at least Budge's stuff is widely and inexpensively available in Dover paperback editions....

3.0 von 5 Sternen Geschmacksache... 30. September 2013
Von Yvonne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Für mich ist es eine Art Klassiker..Ich kannte das Buch von früher und muss sagen damals hatte es mich echt beeindruckt.. Irgendwie hat es über die Jahre leider an Glanz für mich verloren..Also ändern sich die Geschmäcker wohl doch im Alter...
Bin dennoch froh es gelesen zu haben..

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great book. 26. August 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was wonderful. It was a bit hard to understand so I would recommend that a experianced student of the Ancient Egyptian culture buy it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen "Antiquated, and not for the serious Egyptologist." 22. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As a former student of Egyptology, I must inform all potential readers that Budge's translations are very poor, and that much better translations of the Papyrus of Ani now exist. Budge also tends to exaggerate and sensationalize. If this book was supposed to be a literal translation, this wouldn't be the case. The inferior translations are mostly due to the age of the book. Advances in the field of Egyptian grammar make this text obsolete.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read the original first !!!!!!!!! 21. November 2005
Von Madd Atheist - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I gave this book 5 stars simply for the reason being that Budge was the first to translate the Egyptian Text and offered a literal translation. In contrast, if anyone wants to read a mystical interpretation of the text the best available for this would be: (The Egyptian Book of the Dead : The Book of Coming Forth by Day by: Muata A. Ashbi)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Book of the Dead-Giovanni Callanta (Chicago) 12. August 2004
Von Giovanni Callanta - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Being an archaeologist, I know better than to claim that there is such a thing as a wrong or right inference. They are all just interpretations of available information that can be translated differently by another person (I believe this is why Budge included the original text--in order to give the reader a chance to make hs own inferences). The best way to judge an interpretation based on artifacts and proveniences is by the background and experience of the academic doing the translation. Being a celebrated Egyptologist for such a long period of time ought to count for something. I know I wouldn't disparage a fellow Archy based on the words of a fictional man from a movie that claimed pyramids were built by aliens.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A "Must Have"! 23. März 1998
Von ashlynn@paganism.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was translated by the late Sir Ernest A. Wallis Budge, (aka E. A. Wallis Budge) from ancient hieroglyphic papyri, and is a classic in the field of Egyptology and a "must have" in the library's of those interested in ancient Egyptian Spirituality.
In this book you will find both the hieroglyphs as well as Sir Budge's translations.
Here is a short excerpt:
"Permit thou not me to be judged according to the mouths of
"the multitude. May my soul lift itself up before [Osiris], having
"been found to have been pure when on earth. May I come into "thy presence, O Lord of the gods; may I arrive at the Nome of "Maati (Truth)...."
(from the Turin Papyrus)
Sir Wallis Budge was the "Keeper of the Egyptian and Syrian Antiquities in the British Museum" in the late 1800's and early 1900's, and was a prolific translator of ancient Egyptian Spiritual papyri.
While some modern Egyptologists have found minor mistakes in Sir Wallis Budge's translations; his earnestness and sincerity can not be denied.
This is a "must have" book!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Kindle edition lacking translation 12. November 2010
Von Richard Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This kindle version advertises itself as being 704 pages and thus the full translation of these texts: in fact it is only the same introduction as the free version with a brief blurb on Budge. Don't buy this unless Amazon fixes it!
