Egyptian Magic: The Quest for Thoth's Book of Secrets

by Maarten J. Raven Author

A beautiful and informative overview of ancient Egyptian magic, superstitious beliefs, and the occult.

Egyptian Magic describes how Egyptian sorcerers used their craft to grant humankind magical powers. The ancient Egyptians were firmly convinced of the importance of magic, as both a source of supernatural wisdom and a means of affecting one’s own fate; magic formed a link between human beings, gods, and the dead. Magicians were the indispensable guardians of the cosmic order and scholars were always searching for the Magic Book of Thoth which could explain the wonders of nature. Egyptian Magic explores the arcane systems and traditions of the occult that governed the well-organized universe of ancient Egypt with gorgeous color photos of mystical and mysterious objects from museum collections.
