Ancient Egyptian Gods & Goddesses
There are so many Egyptian gods and goddesses – some changed roles and forms, some merged with other deities, some were locally worshipped while some were state-deities, some with elaborate myths and stories and some with very little information about them.
But in an attempt to keep it simple, what I will do on this section of the website is list the most famous and/or important ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses.
If you want to make sure you have a better understanding of how they came to be and how they are connected, you can check out the Creation Myths, the Great Ennead of Heliopolis and the Ogdoad of Hermopolis.
Please keep in mind that this section of the website is being updated, improved and added to. So keep checking back here as I upload each deity’s page!
Egyptian Gods and Goddesses
Who created the world? Who guided the dead? Which god loved which goddess? Did the gods communicate with the people?
The ancient Egyptians had elaborate explanations and beliefs about how the deities lived, where they originated, and how the people could interact with them.
For example: did you know that the ancient Egyptians warned the gods that if they were not allowed to visit with their loved ones in the afterlife, they would stop all their offerings and prayers? Also, did you know that at some point the gods almost wiped out the entire human race as revenge for insulting Ra?
All of that and more is going to be covered in this section of the website – so keep an eye out for it and enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed this page on Egyptian Gods and Goddesses. I will keep updating it with more gods and goddesses but of course I cannot cover all of them since there were hundreds! If you enjoyed the page, please share it with anyone else you think might like it.
