  • The Sky-religion in Egypt: Its Antiquity and Effects.
  • G. A. Wainwright

First published in 1938, this volume originated in a series of articles written mainly for the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology between 1925 and 1938. Created with both the Egyptologist and general reader in mind, it provides a highly informative account of religious development in ancient Egypt, and its connection with the need for fertility and rain. The text has a clear factual emphasis, with abundant references, illustrations, and a conspectus of key historical periods.

It will be of value to anyone with an interest in ancient Egypt or historiography.
