Book of the Dead

From Archaix Wiki

"The Book of the Dead (Ancient Egyptian: π“‚‹π“€π“ˆ’π“ˆ’π“ˆ’π“Œπ“€π“‰π“‚‹π“π“‚»π“…“π“‰”π“‚‹π“…±π“‡³π“€, r(ꜣ)w n(y)w prt m hrw(w)) is an ancient Egyptian funerary text generally written on papyrus and used from the beginning of the New Kingdom (around 1550 BCE) to around 50 BCE. The original Egyptian name for the text, transliterated r(ꜣ)w n(y)w prt m hrw(w), is translated as Book of Coming Forth by Day or Book of Emerging Forth into the Light.[citation needed] "Book" is the closest term to describe the loose collection of texts consisting of a number of magic spells intended to assist a dead person's journey through the Duat, or underworld, and into the afterlife and written by many priests over a period of about 1,000 years. Karl Richard Lepsius introduced for these texts the German name Todtenbuch (modern spelling Totenbuch), translated to English as Book of the Dead."
