    Here's a cool site I discovered, about Anubis and other jackal deities in the Kemetic pantheon: http://www.per-sabu.org
    Has info and it's still being updated, so there's more to come!

    Also, I don't know if this was mentioned, but this site goes into various Kemetic stuff:

    I'd definitely be interested in seeing some Kemetic resources.

    The only one right now that I can think of, that I really like, is:

    Kemetic Orthodox

    Anyway, what about you?, what other Kemetic/Egyptian resources do you like/recommend?.
    Just wanted to point out that the link for this one should probably be http://www.kemet.org/ in order to not get an error message ("page not found".)

    Just curious if we could get this thread updated. I'm curious about Egyptian paths and such, but have no idea where to begin to look for info online and most of these links are dead (or at least the ones I looked at). Is there anyone who can update these links and/or post new links?

    Thanks!

    I took a course in ancient Egyptian religion this past year, and the course book was Religion in Ancient Egypt: Gods, Myths and Personal Practice, edited by Byron E. Shafer. It's a good general book for Egyptian religion.
    Thanks for that link, and that book recommendation, I'll try and get it sometime (although, probably not for awhile, I've got too many books that I keep buying that I need to finish!).

    BTW, does that book present the information in an easily understandable way?.

    There are public-domain Egyptian texts in English, including Budge's translation of the Book of the Dead, at http://www.sacred-texts.com/egy/index.htm

    I know this is resurrecting a really old post (from 2002!) but I thought I'd add a comment for the benefit of anyone who happens to read this thread.

    It's not really an accident that there appears to be a connection between Hermeticism and ceremonial magick and Egypt. The purported author of the Hermetic philosophy is Hermes Trismegistus, "Thrice-Great Hermes," who was connected to the Greek god Hermes and also the Egyptian god Thoth (some say Hermes Trismegistus was a human embodiment of those two deities.)

    Hermetic scholars have long considered the roots of their philosophy to lie in the mystery schools of ancient Egypt and so have not surprisingly added in more Egyptian material as time went on, or emphasised the things that they think might have been originally Egyptian in their philosophy.

    Another great resource of authentic magickal material that comes from Greek and Roman and Egyptian times before and during the Christian era is "The Greek Magical Papyri In Translation" edited by Hans Dieter Betz. It's an English translation of hundreds of texts they've discovered which detail prayers, rituals, spells, etc. Lots of interesting Egyptian material in there!

    Hi there!

    Finally, someone who has one of Rosemary's books. I have become a follower of hers because I started doing the rituals in THe Sacred Magic of Ancient Egypt and they work 100% of the time. Her work is awesome (excuse the phrase). I applied for a Seminarian postion at her Temple Harakhte.

    Try to get The Sacred Magic of Ancient Egypt by Rosemary.
    THe rituals are great!
    I would love to discuss her books with you.
