Religion in Ancient Egypt
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Religion was important in the daily life of Egyptians. They worshiped many gods. This is known as polytheism. During the New Kingdom period, the people of Egypt worshiped more than sixty gods and goddesses!
 
2     Egyptians pictured their gods and goddesses in different ways. A few of the gods and goddesses were thought to be like ordinary men and women. Some were like animals. Many were thought to be half-human and half-animal. One god could appear in different forms.
 
3     Gods and goddesses often symbolized the sky, wind, sun, or earth. The people believed that gods made the sun rise in the morning and set at night. They believed the gods watched over everything that happened on Earth and in the afterlife.
