Summary:

This is the second volume of the Egyptian Heaven and Hell series. Volume II includes the short form of the Book of Am-Tuat as well as the complete hieroglyphic text and translation of the Book Of Gates. The Book of Gates details the journey of a newly deceased soul through the underworld, having to pass through different gates. Each gate is associated with a different goddess and it is implied that whilst some will pass through unharmed, others won't.
