Egypt Mythology

Egyptian mythology is the collection of myths from ancient Egypt, which describe the actions of the Egyptian gods as a means of understanding the world around them. Egypt had one of the largest and most complex pantheons of gods of any civilization in the ancient world.

Throughout Egyptian history, hundreds of gods and goddesses were worshipped. The characteristics of individual gods could be hard to pin down. Most had a principle association (for example, with the sun or the underworld) and form. Here are some of the most famous ones:

  1. Bastet- The cat Goddess Bastet was represented as a woman with the head of a lion or a wild cat.
  2. Ra- The God of the Sun. It was believed that he sailed across the sky in a boat each day and then made a passage through the underworld each night, during which he would have to defeat the snake god Apophis to rise again.
  3. Thoth- The God of writing and wisdom, could be depicted in the form of a baboon or a sacred ibis or as a man with the head of an ibis.
  4. Anubis- He was concerned with funerary practices and the care of the dead. The association of jackals with death and funerals likely arose because Egyptians would have observed jackals scavenging around cemeteries.
  5. Osiris- The God of the underworld. He symbolized death, resurrection, and the cycle of Nile floods that Egypt relied on for agricultural fertility.
