In this scholarly yet accessible work, Desroches Noblecourt substantiates how the fundamental ideas, principles, and beliefs on which Western civilization is based originated in ancient Egypt. From the symbol of the lion as king of the animals to the design of Greek columns, she traces the evolution of ideas back to the pre-Christian era in Egypt. Anubis with his head of a black dog is an earlier form of Saint Christopher, the patron saint of travelers, while Saint George slaying the dragon echoes Tutankhamun launching his harpoon.
