About Rebel in the Soul

 
This controversial text, that was meant for initiates at the threshold of the Ancient Egyptian Inner Temple, speaks to us with intriguing relevance to the problems of today. Taking the form of a dialogue between a man and his soul, this sacred text explores the inner discourse between doubt and mystical knowledge and deals with the rebellion and despair of the intellect at a crucial stage of spiritual development. Accompanied by stunning illustrations carefully selected to enhance the text and the author's commentaries, which combine poetic insight with rigorous scholarship, Rebel in the Soul provides a unique access to the secrets of Egyptian symbolism.

This is a new edition of Rebel in the Soul, the first complete and consistent translation of the Berlin Papyrus 3024, which is thought to be nearly 4,000 years old.
