A detailed study of the mortuary temple of Sethos [Seti] I at Abydos. 'From the surviving reliefs on its walls the author reconstructs the rituals which were once performed within the building, paying special attention to the Daily Temple Ritual, the Ritual of the Royal Ancestors and the Osiris mysteries, so closely associated with the site. The spells are translated, the order of scenes is established and from these the first convincing picture of ancient Egyptian religious ceremonial emerges' (from the blurb). One of the Modern Egyptology series.
