Book of the Dead

I have watched the movie “Beetlejuice” with Michael Keaton many times and always chuckled when they mentioned a copy of “The Book of the Dead” informing the recently deceased what to do. Well believe it or not but there is such a book.

The Book of the Dead” was written in Egypt in the 15th century by Sesostris. He was a cattle counter and writer. This book is actually a scroll that measures 20 feet in length. It includes magical spells to help those who are recently deceased to find their way to the afterlife. Today you can find this interesting scroll in the Austrian National Library. That is the original but you can actually purchase copies online as a guide to the underworld.
