9781511846042: The Culture And Constellations Of Ancient Egypt

The Culture And Constellations Of Ancient Egypt

For the Ancient Egyptians, the sun, moon, planets, stars and star patterns were of great significance not only for timekeeping and use in surveying but also because these objects could be directly linked to the gods and goddesses that were worshipped and feared.
Patterns and individual stars in the sky would again represent not only the deities but also Pharaohs and more common ‘day to day’ objects with which ordinary Egyptians could associate. These patterns, called constellations, are symbols of important aspects of daily, political and religious life.
The Ancient Egyptians believed that the sun was of extreme importance and that as a deity would change its character throughout the day.
Additionally, the Ancient Egyptians did not take for granted that the sun would rise in the morning. Its rising would only be granted if the gods were appeased.
