Greetings!
I am in the process of moving and my books and such are already packed, i know that Bast was an important deity and still patron of many women today she is a strong goddess. Maybe oneday when i am settled i can put everthing back in order and help with this question.
I know there has to be others who can help.

I know a few good websites, and that's all. I don't have any of the books, I have read some though. Give me a few days to locate the names.

Just two to mention:

Ancient Egyptian Myths and Legends by Lewis Spence,
Great book which goes into detail about the Dieties and if fairly comprehensive

Daily life of the Egyptian Gods by Dimitri Meeks
This one is good because it explores the sociatal system of the gods as well as their connection to the Pharoahs very enlightening book!!

Hope this helps a little!!

There, I have moved the thread for you into the Books forum and left a redirect in the History forum. Hope fully you should get some more replies. As for the deity Bast, I'll try and do some research.

The only reason I'm able to do it is because I'm a moderator. It's an administrative option.
