This course will be an undergraduate introduction to the religion of ancient Egypt in its cultural context. Religion was central to life in ancient Egypt, and in this course students will study Egyptian religion through its intellectual and material culture. Students will explore the definitions of religion in ancient Egypt as well as the Egyptian understandings of gods and goddesses, Egyptian cosmology and mythology, temples and their priesthoods, and the roles and uses of magic. A major component of this course will focus on the reading of the Egyptian Book of the Dead in translation and a study of its illustrations as an entry-point into understanding Egyptian afterlife beliefs and funerary practices.
