My object in the present storyhas been to give you as lively a picture as possible of that life, drawn from the bulky pages of Sir J. Gardner Wilkinson and otherwriters on the same subject. I have laid the scene in the time of Thotmes III., one of the greatest of the Egyptian monarchs, beingsurpassed only in glory and the extent of his conquests by Rameses the Great. It is certain that Thotmes carried the arms of Egypt to theshores of the Caspian, and a people named the Rebu, with fair hair and blue eyes, were among those depicted in the Egyptian sculptures asbeing conquered and made tributary. It is open to discussion whether the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt took place in the reign of Thotmesor many years subsequently, some authors assigning it to the time of Rameses. Without attempting to enter into this much-discussedquestion, I have assumed that the Israelites were still in Egypt at the time of Thotmes, and by introducing Moses just at the time hebegan to take up the cause of the people to whom he belonged, I leave it to be inferred that the Exodus took place some forty years later. Iwish you to understand, however, that you are not to accept this date as being absolutely correct. Opinions differ widely upon it; and as noallusion whatever has been discovered either to the Exodus or to any of the events which preceded it among the records of Egypt, there isnothing to fix the date as occurring during the reign of any one among the long line of Egyptian kings. The term Pharaoh used in the Biblethrows no light upon the subject, as Pharaoh simply means king, and the name of no monarch bearing that appellation is to be found on theEgyptian monuments. I have in no way exaggerated the consequences arising from the slaying of the sacred cat, as the accidental killingof any cat whatever was an offense punished by death throughout the history of Egypt down to the time of the Roman connection with thatcountry. * Type : Cat Goddess Bast-Bastet* Packaging : Good shrink wrap* Quantity : 1 peice* Size : as show in picture* Payment : Paypal * Return : You can Return within 15 days after receiving * Shipment : we use DHL Fast Shipping * Handling : we have a handling time of one-business day and ship using Expedited Shipping (3-9 business days)* Contact Me : We are always at your service throughout the week Condition: “As Shown In Pictures”, Provenance: Luxor, Material: Stone
