Ancient Egypt – The Light of the World, Volume 2 – Gerald Massey
No one ever understood the mythology and Ritual of Ancient Egypt so well as Gerald Massey since the time of the Ancient Philosophers of Egypt. This book is one of the best when it comes down to Egyptian mythology, occultism, and interpretation. It’s a standard work no one wants to miss.
Gerald Massey (29 May 1828 – 29 October 1907) was an English poet and self-educated Egyptologist. He was born near Tring, Hertfordshire in England. He was attracted by the movement known as Christian Socialism, into which he threw himself with whole-hearted vigor, and so became associated with Frederick Denison Maurice and Charles Kingsley. He became interested in Egyptology and the similarities that exist between ancient Egyptian mythology and the Gospel stories. He studied the extensive Egyptian records housed in the British Museum, and eventually taught himself to decipher the hieroglyphics. Massey’s first public appearance as a writer was in connection with a journal called the Spirit of Freedom, of which he became editor. He also published works dealing with Spiritualism, the study of Shakespeare’s sonnets, and theological speculation.
