Ptolemy Soter, the first Makedonian ruler of Egypt, established the library at Alexandria to collect all of the world’s learning in a single place. His scholars compiled definitive editions of the Classics, translated important foreign texts into Greek, and made monumental strides in science, mathematics, philosophy and literature. By some accounts over a million scrolls were housed in the famed library. Though it has long since perished due to the ravages of war, fire, and human ignorance, the image of this great institution has remained a powerful inspiration down through the centuries.
To help promote the revival of traditional polytheistic religions we have launched a series of books dedicated to the Gods of Greece, Egypt, and the surrounding region. Each volume contains essays, poetry, devotional material, original artwork, short fiction, and other works focused on a particular divinity or group of divinities. These anthologies are a collaborative effort drawing on the combined resources of the different elements within the modern Hellenic and Kemetic polytheist communities, and the larger Pagan community, in the hope that we can come together to praise our Gods and share our diverse understandings, experiences and approaches to the divine. All of the proceeds for these books go to help promote the worship of the Gods of Greece and Egypt, either by being used to bring out further volumes or through donation to charitable causes in the name of the Gods.
Bibliotheca Alexandrina Incorporated is a federally-recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization.
Please note that Neos Alexandria/Bibliotheca Alexandrina is in no way affiliated with the secular institution located in Egypt, Bibliotheca Alexandrina. We are completely distinct organizations.
The purpose of the devotional anthologies published by Bibliotheca Alexandrina is to celebrate the Gods, Goddesses, powers, and other spirits through poetry, fiction, essays, rites, and other works. Individuals of all ages, races, ethnicities, orientations, genders, and creeds have contributed in the past to the devotional anthologies published by Bibliotheca Alexandrina; and will continue to contribute to works published in the future. Views expressed outside of these anthologies by individuals are their views alone, and do not necessarily represent the views of Bibliotheca Alexandrina, its Board of Directors, or its membership.

I recently discovered a website offering a free section of your book “Bearing Torches: A Devotional Anthology for Hekate”. Is this a copyright issue? Cite = https://www.researchgate.net/publication/215909678_Flower_of_Fire_Hekate_in_the_Chaldean_Oracles
Hello! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. 🙂 Usually, this would be a case of copyright infringement. However, here it is not: the essay was uploaded by the original author, and authors retain control of any of their work that appears in BA’s devotional anthologies. They can reprint it or feature it in other venues. 🙂
When will In Shadowed Mirror open to submissions?
Bibliotheca Alexandrina is in the process of changing out its board of directors. It is our hope that the new board will open submissions to this anthology sometime in the spring of 2023.
