gods and goddesses of ancient egypt


The number of gods and goddesses that occur in Egyptian mythology is immense and we have listed all those that we feel are worth mentioning. In addition, we have given comprehensive descriptions of the Gods that rose to lasting importance in Egypt and those that were of particular relevance to Luxor along with the various Creation Theories that explained man's existence.

The Coptic religion cannot be ignored in the history of Egypt's ancient Gods and religions and a Coptic Calendar has been given showing the cross over between the old and the new religions. More about the Coptic religion, its history and its festivals can be found in the relevant sections and through the Site Index.

While discussing Gods and Goddesses and their function, shabti have also been discussed. Shabti are the 'servants' that care for the dead in the afterlife where life would be as it was before death.
