Egyptian Gods

The pantheon of deities responsible for maintaining cosmic order in ancient Egypt

Egyptian gods and goddesses were incarnations of both natural phenomena, such as the sun, and social phenomena, like knowledge. Egypt itself was ruled by a pharaoh who claimed to be the gods’ representative on earth, and who acted as a mediator between mankind and the divine.
