This is without a doubt, the most comprehensive, scholarly work on Osiris and the historical cults surrounding his ancient origins, modes of worship, and his role as God of the afterlife, the underworld, and the dead. Included are translations of numerous texts and detailed accounts of the Heaven of Osiris, his cult of resurrection, his iconography, liturgies, shrines and ritual mysteries (both dark and light), his association with human sacrifice and funeral and burial practices, his role as judge of the dead, as well as detailed links connecting the mythology of Osiris worship and those of other African religions. A fascinating study.
