The article aims at reinterpreting Boleslaw Prus' novel Pharaoh made with the use of religious and anthropological contexts. The basic events of the plot were presented as mythological categories: as a fight between twin deities (Osiris and Set), making an offering, miraculous ressurection, and restoration of order. In this manner Prus presents a genetic and functional dependence of old cultural institution (such as politics, monarchy, army, arts, science, economy) on ritual-religious system.
