Overview

The object of The Ancient Egyptian Doctrine of the Immortality of the Soul is to give a clear exposition of the most important shape which the doctrine of immortality assumed in Egypt. The system treated here was the popular belief among all classes of the Egyptian people, from early to Coptic times. By far the greater part of the religious papyri and tomb texts and of the inscriptions of funerary stelae are devoted to it; the symbolism of nearly all the amulets is
connected with it; it was bound up with the practice of mummifying the dead; and it centered in the person of Osiris, the most popular of all the gods of Egypt.
