Library - Theology - Egyptian (or Ancient Egyptian; a.k.a., Kemetism, and Neterism)

Egyptian theology is an ancient polytheistic religion that is believed to have originated before c. 4,000 BCE from an egg on an ocean which hatched Ra, the god of the sun, and so ancient Egyptians worshipped the sun along with eight other deities, most of whom were known to be the direct descendents of Ra.

  • Ra, a.k.a., Re (creator deity; god of the sun, long life, and good health)
