Dive into the depths of Egyptian civilization and discover its ancient rituals. This book, which has more than 200 illustrations - includes many images of the underwater excavations of the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology (IEASM) - takes you there and lets you follow the religious celebrations dedicated to the deceased and resurrected god Osiris.
Unveiled are the secret paths of the Osiris Mysteries from Thonis-Heracleion to Canopus and the rituals celebrating the god's return to life and the cycle of the seasons, which protected the unity and prosperity of the country as well as the dynastic continuity of the pharaohs.
