The Egyptian Book of the Dead Overview

The Egyptian Book of the Dead is a full sequence of prayers, songs, and incantations that are employed at funerals, and by the individual in his journey beyond the tomb. The Egyptians have always been impressed by the reality of human mortality, and much of their religious faith and sacred ritual is taken up with the rites of burial, and detailed set of guidelines as to the experience of the soul after leaving the body. 

The Egyptian Book of the Dead is fascinating because it teaches how clearly and rigidly the solemn and particular Egyptian stated his views and held his convictions concerning the afterlife.
