1.8.1 Egyptian Mythos


The Scale was used to judge a person's heart in the afterlife. The heart was weighed
against 'the feather of truth'. If the heart was heavy with sin, it would tip the scale.
The monster pictured to the right, would then devour the person's soul. However,
if the scale remained in balance, then a soul would be judged worthy enough to
undergo a 1000 year journey back to their body.
