Prof. Petrie has written a little book of one hundred pages on The
Religion of Ancient Egypt, calculated to interest many readers in the
subject and to spread some useful general ideas among them.

Under the title La Religion dcs anciens Egyptiens, M. Naville has
published some interesting lectures delivered at the College de France in
1905. They deal with the origin of the Egyptians as well as their
eschatology, religious ideas, and ritual: reviewed by Andersson, Spihinx
xi. 120.

Erman's useful and interesting Handbook of Egypitian Religion has been
translated into English by A. S. Griffith. The author has contributed a
brief sketch of the same subject to the section Die Oricntalischen Religion
for the series Die Kultur der Geyenwart.
