Religion in Ancient Egypt ~ Ancient Egypt Facts

Religion in Ancient Egypt ~ Ancient Egypt Facts | Ancient Egyptian World | Scoop.it

Today scholars are agreed that the many divinities found in Egyptian temples are to be considered as attributes or intermediaries of the Supreme Being, the One God, the only one recognized and worshipped by the priests, those initiates or wise men of the sanctuaries.

 

At the pinnacle of the Egyptian pantheon there stands a God who is unique, immortal, who was not created, who is invisible and hidden in the inaccessible depths of his own Being.
