Summary

Resurrection -- the triumph over death -- has been the most enduring of human desires, found in all ages and in all cultures. This book, originally in two volumes, comprises all of Wallis Budge's work on Osiris, the great Egyptian god of immortality, and the many beliefs that surrounded his cult. A notable feature is that it traces the ancient worship of Osiris to Africa rather than to Asia. In the first part, Budge gives a complete history of Osiris, his name and iconography, and the rites and sacrifices associated with his worship, including human sacrifice. In the second part, he presents the cultic mysteries of Osiris, the African Doctrine of Last Things, the Goddess Isis and her cult and many other features of the worship of Osiris and Isis. This important work is essential for students of Egyptian and comparative religion, as well as all those who wish to know how, across the ages, humans have confronted mortality and the infinite.
