Religious beliefs


Our thoughts, artwork, music and dance, crafts, religions, and many other traditions were all born in ancient times and were handed from generation to generation because they were a way of life and truly important to the people… these traditions and the people that formed them should not be forgotten, for they are the strong roots on which we grow…

 2. the Myths(sush as)

  • The story of Isis & Osiris, The Story of RESOURCES, The Great Queen Hatshepsut
(In the legend of Osiris and Isis), their wicked brother, Seth, the god of confusion and disorder, killed Osiris by a trick. He manufactured a golden box, according to the exact measurements of his brother Osiris, and announced that he was giving the golden box to the person who shall exactly fit in it.

After it was tried by the other companions and found not to fit, he asked his brother Osiris, who knew the wickedness of Seth, to try it. Of course, the box fit. Seth then nailed the lid on top of the box and threw it with the body of Osiris in the Nile.

Osiris was rescued by his sister and wife Isis, but he was killed again and mutilated. Seth distributed Osiris' parts all over the country, so Isis collected them and tried to put them together.

After the last part, the backbone (Djed Pillar), was found, the body of Osiris was complete again. Through a charm, which Isis possessed, Osiris came back to life.

Thus the Djed Pillar symbolized resurrection, stability and endurance and became the emblem of Osiris. When the deceased takes this emblem or amulet into his tomb, he will remain complete in the afterlife and shall be resurrected and live forever.

4. The Land

Such as

Thebes, Memphis & Heliopolis Thebes

· Thebes

The ancient Egyptian name for Thebes was Waset; it was the Greeks who gave it the name Thebai. It is located in Upper Egypt near the desert trade routes and Nubia. It reached its height of power during the New Kingdom. The city's exceptionally dry climate has helped to preserve its monuments, such as the temples at Karnak and Luxor, much better than those built in the northern cities

.·  Memphis

Memphis, "White Walls", was the first capital of Egypt following its unification by the pharaoh Menes. In the area around Memphis, at sites such as Saqqara and Dahshur, pharaohs and important officials were entombed over many centuries 

· Heliopolis Thebes

 Heliopolis is found just to the northeast of modern Cairo. It was politically and spiritually powerful during the Old Kingdom. It is the site of the first known sun temple, which was dedicated to Re- Hekarte. Today, only a single relic remains standing at the site. The obelisk of Senwosret I now marks the location.
