Discussion (week 3) Hist1A: Egyptian Book of the Dead,  Genesis, Exodus 23:41 MIDTERM: compare and contrast specific places/texts but also cross with  GENERAL THEMES. EGYPTIAN BOOK OF THE DEAD Egypt: Death was a journey Do specific things to get access to the afterlife (ritualistic). Prepare for afterlife during life. Happy afterlife; take people from earth with you… to assist you. Social mobility (burial proximity… buried closer to the ruler than you could get  closer… if far removed, you may not even get one) Mesopotamia Life was stint of human mortality, what you accomplished during your life is  mainly it. Not a sense of afterlife beyond grim shadow Living in this world with god’s help No concern of afterlife; Enkidu’s view of underworld was painful/dismal  (Gilgamesh)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
