Egypt's Mysterious Book of the Faiyum offered a new look at ancient Egypt. It went beyond the usual exhibition subject matter of mummies and tombs, preparations for the afterlife, and the famous pharaohs by exploring ancient Egyptian artistry, mythology, and religious iconography.   Gnosticism: The History and Legacy of the Mysterious Ancient Religion looks at the different origins that shaped Gnosticism, what Gnostics believed and practiced, and the influence they had on other religions.

In Cat Magic, Patricia Telesco takes us on a fascinating tour of the different roles cats have played in human experience, with over illustrations documenting the appearance and importance of cats in our mythology, in the spiritual teachings and religious practices of our ancestors, and in totems, spells, and other rituals of magic. The answers, although different from religion to religion, give people’s lives purpose, meaning, and hope. The different religions have their own views on the meaning of life: Hinduism: Gain release from the cycle of rebirth and merge with the eternal Divine, thus escaping an inhospitable world.
