Event description
Final lecture in series of 5 focusing on the gods primarily of Upper Egypt. Amun at Gebel Barkal and Isis in the Greco-Roman World

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 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 the Upper Egypt although some gods are national.

This ticket is for one lecture
