Legends of Babylon and Egypt in relation to Hebrew tradition, by Leonard W. King by L. W King( Book )

The interconnected influences of different traditions of ancient mythology on one another consumed the archaeological efforts of the late 19th and early 20th century, though much work in Britain and Europe was interrupted by the outbreak of World War I. This fascinating 1918 study-adapted from a series of lectures delivered to the British Academy in 1916 rings with the frustration of its British author. A renowned classical scholar, King incorporates the then latest research from American academics into his intriguing analysis of the impact of Babylonian and Egyptian mythology on t

4 editions published between 1913 and 2013 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1913, this book provides an informative analysis of the transition from Paganism to Christianity in Europe. Originally designed as a handbook for students of early Christian literature, the text discusses factors in the development of Christian ideas and institutions not easily discerned in the works of Greek and Latin authors. The fundamental importance of ancient religious traditions in the development of Egyptian Christianity is of central importance to the argument, which draws on numerous primary sources. Concise and highly readable, this book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Egyptian history and the development of Christianity"--Page 4 of cover
