    Gods and goddesses in Ancient Egypt: creation

    Post  Admin on Fri Mar 31, 2017 10:22 pm

    Ancient Egyptian writings record several different and equally vivid metaphors for creation. Each year, the Nile Valley was flooded in late summer, and each year the fields emerged from the floodwaters later in the autumn, coated with black mud left by the floods. This powerfully repeated experience provided the principal motifs for expressing the mystery of creation.

    Khnum
    As well as creating the body and the "ka" (spirit) of each newborn child, he could bless the child.
