Overview

Margaret Alice Murray (1863-1963) was a prominent British anthropologist and Egyptologist. She was well known in academic circles for scholarly contributions to Egyptology and the study of folklore which led to the theory of a pan-European, pre-Christian pagan religion that revolved around the Horned God. Margaret Murray's reputation as a witchcraft historian is poor, and she is criticized by contemporary historians (such as Ronald Hutton) because of her demonstrated tendency to subjectively interpret or otherwise manipulate evidence to conform to her theory. Her theories are acknowledged to have significantly influenced the emergence of Wicca and reconstructionist neopagan religions. Her works include: Saqqara Mastabas (1904), Elementary Egyptian Grammar (1905), Elementary Coptic Grammar (1911), Egyptian Sculpture (1930) and Egyptian Temples (1931).

    Ancient Egyptian Legends ties some ideas together

    If nothing else, this short tome by the late Margaret Murray illustrates the logic and the complexity of ancient Egyptian mythology. I got several "a-ha" insights from her writing. Too, it makes me want to have an org chart of the Egyptian gods. Someday, I want to go to Egypt. I'd be thrilled to actually read a heiroglyph. The book already teaches me something of the reasons for their monuments, their festivals and there reverence for their leadership.

    Where I fault the book and many other inexpensive/free books is that nobody seems to want to check for errors in text conversion before release.The first time this happened to me, I actually thought the fault was mine.
