Henri Stierlin, The Pharaohs Master-Builders, Editions Pierre Terrail, Paris 2001
Draws on historical fact and magnificent illustration to reveal the spiritual aspects of the colossal edifices built over three millennia in the Valley of the Nile.
For three millennia, the Valley of the Nile, from the Delta to Nubia, was an immense construction site. Stierlin shows how all these colossal edifices - pyramids, temples, tombs, palaces, storerooms, and fortresses - were endowed with a moving spiritual quality that made them unique.
