What inspired this remarkably influential man to become the most revolutionary religious innovators to have ever lived? Akhenaten, the father of Tutankhamun and the husband of Queen Nefertiti, ruled over Egypt for seventeen years during the eighteenth dynasty.

Posted by Naphtali Bowen on

A mysterious ancient book written in an Egyptian language called Coptic has puzzled researchers ever since it was first found as part of an extensive papyrus collection at Macquarie University in Australia in 1981. But now, two Australian scientists say they’ve finally translated the 1,300-year-old text, and it turns out that the text is a book of spells, Live Science reported.
