I need help.
I'm trying to remember the Religious Pantheon of the Egyptians but my brain is losing it after Horus, Set and Hathor. (Darn Star Gate getting me started on this again.)
My books are of course on loan to a friend for research purposes, so I can't look the information up. Anyone offer any assistance?
There you go.
I'm also not a fan of "matching up" gods from one pantheon to another. These gods came out of a specific place and time and the context out of which they arose should be taken into account when studying them. You could say that Thoth and Hermes (for example) have a lot in common, but equating them as *the same* is completely discounting their legitimate differences. Of course there will be similarities, but it's important to note the differences and to ask *why* there are differences.
Two good books on the Egyptian Pantheon are The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Egypt by Richard H. Wilkinson and A Dictionary of Egyptian Gods and Goddesses by George Hart.
for instance, I know that there were more than just the Goddess of Fertility in Greek Mythology, as well as the fact that one God or Goddess lined up with several aspects of life, depending on the location of the town you found the myth.
Still the Egyptians had a couple hundred of gods & variations on gods, so figuring out a pantheon can be tricky. One could stick to gods with temples, I guess.
