I posted this in the Hellenic Recons forum too, but I thought I'd post it here as well 'cause NeosAlexandria is combination of the Kemetic religion and the Hellenic religion too.

NeosAlexandria, a Greco-Egyptian recon group, one Sannion is a part of, have released a new book on Dionysus, the first of many books they plan on releasing on the Gods they worship (which includes the Kemetic Gods too).

From here:

It is with a great deal of pride that I am finally and happily able to
announce that the first volume in the Bibliotheca Alexandrina has been
completed and is available for purchase!

Written in Wine is a devotional anthology dedicated to Dionysos, the
god of wine, vegetation, religious ecstasy, personal liberation, and
the mysteries of life. With almost sixty pieces by over thirty
contributors from every segment of the Hellenic polytheist community
(as well as folks who do not identify as such) it is truly exhaustive
in its portrayal of the different ways that people understand and
relate to this complex and powerful deity today. Within these pages
you will find original artwork, poetry, essays, fiction, scholarly
translations, personal accounts of experiences with the god and even a
play! In their very different ways each of our authors show that
Dionysos is alive and still deeply touching our lives today.

Written in Wine can be purchased from our online store by visiting the
following link:


Shortly it will also be available through Amazon.com and able to be
ordered through your local retail book chain but we encourage you to
purchase it through our website since that will give the Bibliotheca
Alexandrina a higher portion of the royalties without changing the
price for you the consumer.

Why does that matter?

Because all of the proceeds from Written in Wine as well as the
other volumes in the Bibliotheca Alexandrina series will be used to
help promote the revival of the worship of the Greek and Egyptian

50% of the royalties will be used to put on Neos Alexandria's 4-day
religious gathering in 2009.
25% of the proceeds will be used to bring out further devotional
volumes for other Greek and Egyptian gods through the Bibliotheca
And the remaining 25% of the proceeds will be given to a worthy
charitable organization in the name of the gods of Greece and Egypt.

So, not only will you be getting a wonderful book about the modern
worship of Dionysos but your money will be going to do good work and
help the revival of ancient polytheistic religions.

We are rebuilding the Library of Alexandria one book at a time!

About the Bibliotheca Alexandrina
Yours in the Gods,

Neos Alexandria:

"The Light of Alexandria will never fade"
Personally, I'd like to get this, even though I'm not a Dionysus worshipper, as well as the other books they are planning on getting (I hope they put one out on Ereshkigal too, who's a part, or going to be part, of the group of Gods they worship).

It really sounds quite cool what the group is doing, they seem to be getting really busy and getting themselves organised and even offline (as Sannion's message said, they're planning a religious gathering/festival for 2009).

It sounds quite cool, IMO, and I'd love to one day visit one of their gatherings.

I know some of you probably aren't that interested in Dionysus but I thought some of you might be interested 'cause NeosAlexandria does worship Kemetic Gods too, and combines and adopts certain Kemetic concepts (which was done in historical times, as this is a reconstruction of the Greco-Egyptian religion), such as the concept of divine kingship, etc (although NeosAlexandria don't have a divine king like Kemetic Orthodox, it did play an important role in Greco-Egypt in ancient times).

Hope you like this .
