introduction and sources
Welcome! This section of the Per-Bast.org website focuses on historical information regarding the ancient Egyptian (Kemetic) goddess (Netjert) Bast (sometimes erroneously referred to as Bastet, as explained later in the essay). Information in this section is strictly historical, with some debunking of modern myths and misconceptions thrown in for good measure.
My sources for the following pages include:
I have also sourced throughout the text, for readers who wish to further pursue my sources.
The assistance of Tamara Siuda (Masters in Egyptology from the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago) and Craig Schaefer also proved invaluable in my research on this subject.
Many of the above books are available from Amazon.com as well as other online stores and, barring that, your local library. I would like to also thank the archive assistants at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago for allowing me to peruse their stacks for information about Bast that has proved invaluable in my slow piecing together of Her past, present, and future understanding.
