Hello everyone. i'm new here. I've always been interested in Kemet ever since i was a child and have become more and more interested in delving deeper into the religion. one thing i am struggling to find however is a Copy of the Pert em heru (Book of the dead). i know i can find it online in its original and translated versions But i'm looking for one that doesn't have any "commentary" just the original text translated and perhaps translated into its Phonetic. Does anyone have a recommendation?

Kind regards.
Niko

Em Hotep, and Welcome Nikolai.

I find the versions on https://oi.uchicago.edu/research/publications/studies-ancient-oriental-civilization-saoc are a good start. They're spread across multiple volumes, and free to download.

You'll probably find some commentary by default, if only because there are multiple versions of the BotD, but I hope this helps.

Senebty,

Em hotep, and welcome! Tjemsy here, lovely to meet you. <3

It's my understanding that the BotD is terribly complicated and difficult to understand, particularly if you're not already familiar with Egyptain symbolism/theology/whatever. Some people recommend reading more introductory books first, and as far as I know, there are many Kemetics who haven't read the BotD, and for whom the BotD is not especially relevant to their practice.

I've actually seen some copies at Barnes & Noble, but as I've not read them, I can't say whether or not they contain commentary. I've been told that Budge's translation is highly inaccurate and should be avoided. KO's recommended reading list suggests that Faulkner's translation is recommended, and that Allen's is the best direct-to-English translation, but is harder to find. I've also seen the BotD on Amazon.

Our recommended reading list can be found here.

Thank you, i have been somewhat of an amateur Egyptologist for the better part of my life so the BoTD is not difficult to understand. I was just looking for something more simplified than what i've been current;y using.
