The ancient Egyptian Pyramid Texts, dating from the later half of the third millennium BC, are the oldest corpus of religious literature surviving from ancient Egypt. Their purpose was to ensure the welfare of the dead king in the hereafter, and they shed much light on contemporary religious beliefs, while embedded in them are fragments of temple ritual, traces of stellar cult, and glimpses of daily life. This work offers as complete a translation as possible. It is based on the hieroglyphic texts published in 1910 by Sethe in ‘Die Altagyptischen Pyramidentexte’ and lacunae in his edition have been filled with additional texts from the pyramids of Pepe II, Neit, and Aba, as published by Jequier. The hieroglyphic texts for this section of the translation are reproduced in the Supplement.
