Cosmogony (Late to Ptolemaic and Roman Periods)

  • Author(s): McClain, Brett
  • et al.
Abstract

Cosmogonies of Late Period and Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt are founded upon those of the earlier “classic” ages, incorporating old texts and themes but elaborating them to form new compositions, synthesizing elements of the major Heliopolitan, Memphite, and Hermopolitan theologies with texts and rituals more specific to the deities of local cult centers, as well as newly developed theological concepts.
