Egyptian Myth: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

Summary á PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Geraldine Pinch Egyptian Myth: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) Read ò 105 Geraldine Pinch ´ 5 characters H each chapter dealing with a particular themeTo show the variety of source material for Egyptian myth each chapter features a particular object such as the obelisk known as Cleopatra's Needle a golden statue of Tutankhamun and a papyrus containing a story in which the Egyptian gods behave outrageously which is illustrated by a photograph or line drawing The myth The Conte. This is an excellent primer for newcomers to Ancient Egyptian Theology I was very pleased to see that Pinch went so far as to explain the controversy raging over The Contendings of Heru and Set and that it is likely a piece of folklore cultural entertainment rather than myth holy story with liturgical value She also explains to her readers why writers tend to go with Hellenic Greek rather than Kemetic Egyptian names She also includes some delightful morsels of lesser known information regarding the Gods Sobek and YinepuAnpu Anubis that don t often crop up in other texts Pinch also seems to have taken care than most popularly published scholars before her to emphasize which time periods these stories whether folklore or myth come from This gives the reader a sensible understanding of the changes made to theologies along a clear timeline The theologies whether State or regional didn t remain unchanged for 5000 years after all Her language is also plain and accessible to a wider audience It s not a book written by an Egyptologist for other Egyptologists who already should know the fundamentals She also provides a lot of handy charts and diagrams in most chaptersCounts against this tome Pinch isn t always as clear as she should be When she talks about Horus she often can t or simply neglects to distinguish between Heru Wer Horus the ElderGreat the brother of Set Seth Wesir Osiris Aset Isis and Nebet Het Nephthys and Heru sa Aset Horus son of Isis They are not the same entity In fact there are dozens if not hundreds of regional Horuses Who aren t necessarily the same God at all such as Heru Meseni Heru Behdeti Heru Buheni and Heru SepaIn fairness Egyptian religion is immensely complex and to include and explain absolutely every minute detail of State and regional theologies would take years and thousands of pages of writing This is an survey text after all Perhaps it s not reasonable to expect that level of specificity out of a survey textI m not normally the biggest fan of survey texts But for what it is this book is excellent and I highly recommend it to those looking for a good entry point into the wonderful world of all things Ancient Egyptian
