The Dictionary of Egyptian Deities and Divine Designations is the essential guide to the thousands of gods and goddesses mentioned in Ancient Egyptian inscriptions and texts. Each of the 56,500 entries includes information about the variant spellings of the god's name, the date of references, information about the god's appearance (human, animal or mixed), indication of the relationship to other deities (most gods have sisters and brothers), bibliography and references. This essential reference work, the result of over 10 years work by German researchers, will appear in 7 volumes (organised in Egyptian alphabetical order) during 2002 and 2003. The complete set will be complete in July 2003. Text in German.
