Taine, H. A. (n.d.). The French Revolution, Volume 3. Retrieved from

Preface: ?In Egypt,? says Clement of Alexandria,[1] ?the sanctuaries of the temples are shaded by curtains of golden tissue. But on going further into the interior in quest of the statue, a priest of grave aspect, advancing to meet you and chanting a hymn in the Egyptian tongue, slightly raises a veil to show you the god. And what do you behold? A crocodile, or some indigenous serpent, or other dangerous animal, the Egyptian god being a beast sprawling on a purple carpet.?
