Abydos. Abydos - on the western bank of the Nile, located 160 km north of Luxor - was one of the most important religious centers of ancient Egypt and main cult of the god Osiris. The cult of Osiris and his worship in mysterious rituals was expression of the human desire to be linked to the fate of the god: People wanted to participate in his death and especially share his resurrection. Abydos became a center of hope for the overcoming of death. The temple was the setting, were kings and private persons came into contact with the god. The two authors vividly present this extraordinary place, its history and architecture in exciting texts and impressive pictures. Moreover they tell of the daily lives of archaeologists on site, which - despite some adverse circumstances - sustain the long tradition of egyptological research.
