"This volume is a detailed visual record of art and artefacts associated with the worship of the cat and the goddess Bastet in ancient Egypt. The book begins with a brief history of the cult, tracing its development from earliest times to the height of its popularity under the Bubastite dynasty, noting that organized divinity only passed from the cat and the goddess in 392 AD when the Emperor Theodosius I forbade paganism. The remainder of the work, profusely illustrated with objects from the authors' collection, describes pieces depicting cat figures, cat heads, groups, inscriptions, mummy cases, scarabs, amulets and jewelry."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Pharaoh's Cat, narrated in the present tense by the cat himself, is the story of a free-spirited, quick-witted stray in ancient Egypt who suddenly finds himself with human powers joined to his feline nature. The cat immediately captures the attention of the seventeen-year-old Pharaoh, making him laugh for the first time since his parents' death, and is brought to live with him at the royal palace. The cat also becomes friends with the High Priest of the god Amun-Ra and seeks his help in solving the mystery of his human powers and the supernatural manifestations that later plague him. He has an enemy in the Vizier-the Pharaoh's uncle and the second most powerful man in Egypt. The Vizier hates him for himself and even more for his relationship with the Pharaoh. The cat participates in festivities at the royal palace, developing an insatiable appetite for good food, wine, and gossip. He later accompanies the Pharaoh on a trip through his kingdom, all the while renewing the Pharaoh's ability to enjoy life and inspiring him to become a stronger leader. Between the cat and the Pharaoh a bond of love gradually forms which will determine Egypt's destiny. The Pharaoh's Cat imaginatively blends Egyptology with comedy, drama, and even time travel--the cat and the High Priest will meet Elena, a resident of the twenty-first century and the daughter of a renowned Egyptologist. Maria Luisa Lang was born in Rome and lives in New York City. She has a degree in art history and is an amateur Egyptologist. The Pharaoh's Cat is her first novel. She has almost completed a sequel.
