An overview of the religious foundations and spiritual practices of ancient Egypt, from Pre-Dynastic times to the Graeco-Roman period. Material will be drawn from the language and literature of this oldest of civilizations, from texts and monuments, religious and secular. We will also study Egypt’s unique geography, art, and architectural canons, and how they supported a unique world view. Students will also learn how ancient Egyptians’ enigmatic approaches to life, death, and the afterlife were profoundly expressed in these forms and created the basis of what we know as sacred science.
