The splendor that was Egypt by Margaret Alice Murray( Book )

117 editions published between 1949 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 2,026 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How different would Western life be today had the civilization of ancient Egypt never existed? This excellent study by one of the greatest leading Egyptologists of the late nineteenth century provides astonishing answers to that question through an insightful exploration of Egyptian life and culture. Murray examines in detail such topics as food preparation, recreational pastimes, burial customs, religious beliefs, furniture and decor, social rituals, and the importance assigned to art and literature. A complete picture emerges of achievements in architecture, agriculture, horticulture, clothing, physics, astronomy, medicine, engineering, and other sciences; as well as in the establishment of law, government, and religion. This fascinating work will appeal to historians as well as general readers interested in this ancient land. Unabridged republication of the revised edition published by Hawthorn Books, Inc., New York, 1963."--Provided by the publisher
The God of the witches by Margaret Alice Murray( Book )

112 editions published between 1917 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This celebrated study of witchcraft in Europe traces the worship of the pre-Christian and prehistoric Horned God from paleolithic times to the medieval period. Murray, the first to turn a scholarly eye on the mysteries of witchcraft, enables us to see its existence in the Middle Ages not as an isolated and terrifying phenomenon, but as the survival of a religion nearly as old as humankind itself, whose devotees held passionately to a view of life threatened by an alien creed. The findings she sets forth, once thought of as provocative and implausible, are now regarded as irrefutable by folklorists and scholars in related fields. Exploring the rites and ceremonies associated with witchcraft, Murray establishes the concept of the "dying god"--The priest-king who was ritually killed to ensure the country and its people a continuity of fertility and strength. In this light, she considers such figures as Thomas a Becket, Joan of Arc, and Gilles de Rais as spiritual leaders whose deaths were ritually imposed. Truly a classic work of anthropology, and written in a clear, accessible style that anyone can enjoy, The God of the Witches forces us to reevaluate our thoughts about an ancient and vital religion."--Googlebooks, 1970 Oxford ed
