This is a history, mythology and symbolism of the lion and cat goddesses of Ancient Egypt. Lesley Jackson traces the evolution of Sekhmet and Bastet within the context of ancient Egyptian religious rituals, beliefs and practices. Drawing on a wide range of sources, including artefacts, tomb scenes, statues, funerary texts, she also examines the names, epithets and iconography, temples and festivals dedicated to Sekhmet and Bastet. Based on research, it is nevertheless aimed at the pagan who has a personal connection with the ancient gods.
