   schema:description "In their wide-ranging interpretation of the religion of ancient Egypt, [the authors] explore how, over a period of roughly 3500 years, the Egyptians conceptualized their relations with the gods. Drawing on the insights of anthropology, the authors discuss such topics as the identities, images, and functions of the gods; rituals and liturgies; personal forms of piety expressing humanity's need to establish a direct relation with the divine; and the afterlife, a central feature of Egyptian religion. The religion, the authors assert, was characterized by the remarkable continuity of its ritual practices and the ideas of which they were an expression. [This book] is unique in its coverage of Egyptian religious expression in the Ptolemaic and Roman periods. Written with nonspecialist readers in mind, it is largely concerned with the continuation of Egypt's traditional religion in these periods, but it also includes ... accounts of Judaism in Egypt and the appearance and spread of Christianity there.-Back cover."@en ;
