Gods of Ancient Egypt: Divine Landscape Part 3: Middle Egypt

Gods of Ancient Egypt: Divine Landscape Part 3: Middle Egypt

Mon, 11 Jan 2021 10:30 - Mon, 8 Feb 2021 12:00 GMT

Tickets (£35+£3.32 fee) here.

A series of lectures focusing on the gods and goddesses primarily of Middle Egypt, considering how they were depicted and worshipped.

The gods of ancient Egypt were multifaceted, composed of human and animal forms, combining aspects of the natural world. They were thought to live in families, as we do, and often misbehaved! This linked course, over three terms, will examine the gods in Lower, Middle and Upper Egypt, including foreign gods the Egyptians appropriated. We will consider what their iconography can reveal about the roles they played in Egyptian religion. How they were worshipped will be examined, including daily rituals in temples, annual festivals, and adoration in the home. This term will focus predominantly on the gods of Middle Egypt although some gods are national.
