Anubis God of Funery By: Aria Vaillancourt
3/22/10 Cass, Stephanie. "Anubis." Encyclopedia Mythica Inc. . N.p., 03 Mar 1997. Web. 22 Mar 2011. <http://www.pantheon.org/articles/a/anubis.html>. Works Cited Anubis mainly presides over the embalming and preservation matters of the dead, ensuring a prosperous state to enter the afterlife. "[Anubis]...the guide who holds steady the scales on which their hearts are measured against the feather of ma'at..." Anubis was not in control of the decision of who moved to the afterlife, but prepared a soul to face the scales of justice and karma that would allow them to live amongst the Gods. (Cass) Anubis is the egyptian god of the Funery or of death matters. Unlike Osiris, who came later, he is modernly not considered the God of the Afterlife, but rather the guardian of the bodies who seek it.
One of the main sybols of Anubis is an ox-hide splattered with blood and his staff. He is often seen carrying around an ankh. The jackal is also his animal sysmbol. (Anubis) "Anubis." Ancient Egypt: The Mythology. Egyptian Myths, 21 Mar. 2011. Web. 23 Mar 2011. . Anubis' origins are a little controversial in Egyptian mythology. Many sources say that he came from different parents, but most seem to agree that he hwas the son of Nephtys and Osiris (Anubis) In Myth:
The influences of Anubis are still obvious in today's modern culture. Many references or direct influences can be found in modern games, books, tv series and movies. For example, in the tv series, Stargate Sg-1, a main enemy was Anubis himself. The Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis (AMORC) opened a Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in 1928, no doubt containing references to the important god Anubis. There is also a famous Greek publishing company called Anubis Publishing. Even though Anubis is probably not widely worshipped or recognized as a modern god, he has still influenced countless aspects of modern culture and ideology.

Anubis is involved in the famous and seminal myth regarding the death of his father, Osiris. Osiris' evil brother, Set, tried to kill Osiris. His bodily organs were scattered across the lands, and his wife, Isis, hunted them down and compiled them back togetherr. Only with the preservation of Osiris' dead body could he be born again in a new life. Isis called upon Anubis, who was able to preserve his father's body, and make his revival into an immortal God possible. (Cass and "Wikipedia the Free Encyclopedia")
