[7] REFERENCES & RESOURCES

DEITIES PROJECT

REFERENCES & RESOURCES

INTRODUCTION & COMMENTARY

This page serves as a collection of references I’ve gathered and use while developing the story for DEITIES. This isn’t an exhaustive list of what I’ve found, but the list includes material that cover both basic and detailed information about Egyptian history and mythology, as well as other relevant resources for the project.

This page may be updated periodically, and each resource may vary in content and maturity — please use your personal discretion when visiting any links. I’m still searching, recalling, and adding new references to my list as I go, and I’m open to recommendations!


TABLE OF CONTENTS


PUBLISHED BOOKS AND PDFS

Most of these published works are either primary or secondary sources, and some contain information that is not easy to find elsewhere or online.

NOTE: All hyperlinks should direct to the item listing on Amazon and/or the raw PDF file, but you may also search for them elsewhere.


STILL READING / ON MY TO-READ LIST:


ONLINE RESOURCES AND COLLECTIONS

While some of these online resources are primary, several are secondary or tertiary sources of information. Additionally, many of the theology and polytheist sites are independently authored.


ANCIENT EGYPT RESOURCES

*Yes, really — Wikipedia is an accessible online resource and a good tool to quickly reference. It surely doesn’t cover everything and is not an ideal substitute for primary sources, but you won’t go wrong with it as a starting point. Plus, you’ll find several primary/secondary sources cited near the bottom of each Wiki article.
