About the Event
Previous participation and previous knowledge not required.
Binge-watched Marvel’s ‘Moon Knight’ and fell into a Google deep dive to find out more about Ancient Egyptian gods and religion? We got you covered!
Ancient Egyptian religion is undeniably one of the most interesting subjects to explore. Most people have been exposed to ancient Egypt in elementary school where you learn about animal-headed gods, how to write your name in phonetic hieroglyphs, and discover that mummies probably don’t actually come back to life and curse you. We promise!
This reading group on ancient Egyptian gods dives deep into ancient texts about Egyptian religion, examining how gods and goddesses and the divine realm are represented in literature and art.
