Transcript of Egyptian Gods

Egyptian gods Egyptian gods where very inportant in egyptian lifestyle. Egyptians were polytheists, they belived in many gods like: Set, Ra, Isis, and Osiris. These are only a few gods the egyptians believed in. In total, they believd in 29 gods. Egyptians thought gods judged your soul and heart in the after life. When you die, your heart would be weighed against an ostrich feather provided by Ma'at, goddess of justice. If the heart did not tip the scales, the person was let into the under world. If the heart tipped the scales, the heart and it's owner would be eaten by the goddess Ammet. Some of Egypt's Gods: Amun: The king of gods.
Amun was one of the most powerfull gods, when amun was combined with the sun god Ra, he became Amun-Ra. Anubis: God of the dead.
The egyptians named Anubis after Jackals because they were often seen by graveyards. Anubis was the god who helped to embalm Osiris after he was killed by Seth. Thus, Anubis was the god who watched over the process of mummifying people when they died. Atum: Creator of gods.
The ancient egyptians belived that atum was the first god. They also believed that he rose from the water and made all the gods. Horus: God of the sky.
The egyptians had many beliefs about Horus. The most common one was that he was the son of Osiris and Isis. After Osiris was murdered by Seth, horus fought him. During the battle, Horus lost one of his eyes. That eye is now a symbol of protection for the ancient egyptians. Isis: Mother Goddess.
Isis was the wife of Osiris and mother of Horus. Osiris: God of the under world and ruler of the dead.
Osiris was the brother/husband of Isis, and the brother of Nepthys and Seth. He was also the father of Horus.
As well as being a god of the dead, Osiris was a god of resurrection and fertility. In fact, the ancient Egyptians believed that Osiris gave them the gift of barley, one of their most important crops. Ra: The sun god.
The ancient Egyptians believed that Ra was swallowed every night by the sky goddess Nut, and was reborn every morning. The ancient Egyptians also believed that he travelled through the underworld at night. In the underworld, Ra appeared as a man with the head of a ram. Seth: God of chaos.
Seth represented everything that threatened harmony in Egypt. He was the brother of Osiris and Isis, as well as the brother/husband of Nepthys. He murdered his brother Osiris, then battled with his nephew Horus to be the ruler of the living.

At certain times in the history of ancient Egypt, Seth was associated with royalty. Sobek: The god of the nile.
Sobek was connected with the Nile, and protected the king. Live crocodiles were kept in pools at temples built to honour Sobek. Thoth: The god of writing and knowledge
The ancient Egyptians believed that Thoth gave them the gift of hieroglyphic writing. Thoth was also connected with the moon. Temples:
The ancient Egyptians believed that temples were the homes of the gods and goddesses. Every temple was dedicated to a god or goddess and he or she was worshipped there by the temple priests and the pharaoh.
The large temple buildings were made of stone so that they would last forever. Their walls were covered with scenes that were carved onto the stone then brightly painted. These scenes showed the pharaoh fighting in battles and performing rituals with the gods and goddesses. Temple of luxor THE END!!!! References:
