Connection with Ancient Egypt Edit

The Book of the Dead is a manuscript of several papyri joined together. The actual title is "Book of Coming Forth by Day," and it served as a roadmap and guide for the newly deceased soul to navigate the Duat underworld from their tomb to the Hall of Judgement where Anubis would weigh their heart against the Feather of Truth.

Every important person in ancient Egypt was buried by one, and one of the most well-known copies was that of Hunefer, mainly due to its high quality of preservation and the large images.
