This topic I want to start as a review and commentary of the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, as translated by Raymond O Faulkner. Any comments are welcomed, as I want to see what people think about ...

Oh, ok. There is a picture accompanying the spell, "For being transformed into a lotus" showing a hieroglpyh of the lotus bush and human's head coming out of it. This papyrus picture was in ...
