About the Book

Legend of The Gods by Ernest Alfred Wallis is a piece of historical writing which was originally published in 1912. It provides information about the ancient Egyptians, explaining in detail their heritage, culture, language, history, and magic. Insights about Egyptian mythology, deaths of Horus, Isis and Ra, the myths associated are all explored in this text. Budge was an Egyptologist and from his extensive experience he crafted this book and also included original hieroglyphs which are translated in the book to get a deeper understanding of the ancient Egyptians. The Legend of the Creation is found in the third work which is given in the papyrus, and is called the "Book of overthrowing Apep" (i.e., Osiris) This contains a string of spells that were recited when certain prescribed ceremonies were being performed. Apep's "Book" describes the origin not only of heaven, and earth, and all therein, but also of God himself. The name of Apep is not mentioned, and it is impossible to explain its appearance in the Ritual unless we assume that the whole 'Book' was regarded as a spell.
