Lecture four in a series of five focusing on the gods of ancient Egypt: The sky goddess Nut and solar deities Sah and Sothis

About this Event

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 course will consider the gods and goddesses primarily of Lower Egypt. How they were worshipped will be examined, including daily rituals in temples, annual festivals, and adoration in the home. How they were depicted will be considered to reveal their powers and roles in Egyptian religion.

This ticket is for one lecture.

A handbook with suggested readings will be provided and each week links and articles are sent out to supplement the lecture.
