What is Ancient Egypts Writing called?
They believed in the after life. They put the dead pharaohs in a pyramid. They also served many false gods. Egypt became a land steeped in superstition and degrading sexual practices. Far from promoting life and health, the Egyptian way of life led to evil diseases. (Deuteronomy 7:15) Little wonder, then, that the Bible spoke of Egypts gods with contempt, calling them dungy idols.-Ezekiel 20:7, 8. Egypts religion was polytheistic, characterized by over 500 gods, and possibly twice that many. Throughout Egypt generally the company of gods of a town or city were three in number, says Egyptologist E. A. Wallis Budge. In time, a principal triad developed, a holy family composed of Osiris, the father; Isis, the mother; and Horus, the child. Polytheism resulted in several gods claiming to be the sole god. But priests and theologians evidently saw no problem in believing in one god and at the same time viewing him as existing in a multitude of forms. Author B. Mertz comments that this is only another example of that pleasant inconsistency which is so characteristic of Egyptian religion. Animals were often used to represent attributes of gods or even the gods themselves. But French author Fernand Hazan claims that these animals were more than symbols, being considered worthy of reverence because they were the focal point of good or harmful divine powers. Thus, it is not surprising that a Roman citizen was reportedly lynched for killing a cat and that mummified bodies of dogs, cats, crocodiles, falcons, and bulls have been found in Egyptian graves. Ritualism, mystery cults, and magic practices were deeply entrenched in Egypts religion. So also was the use of religious images and symbols, such as the symbol of life, the crux ansata. These were given such prominence, says The New EncyclopÃ¦dia Britannica, that individual faith (i.e., personal piety) was never of primary importance. It adds that among images, that of Isis with the child Horus on her lap, perhaps the prototype of the Madonna with the Child, is the most noteworthy. The Egyptians believed in life after death. They mummified their dead and preserved the bodies of dead pharaohs in impressive pyramids. Ancient graves have yielded, as one author puts it, such pathetic but significant vanities as cosmetic palettes, beads, and pots which once contained food and drink.

The Egyptians had many names for their own country, many of them referring to the two banks of the Nile River (The Banks of Horus for example).

What was ancient Egypts physical setting like?
This answer I have used before. Men of all social classes wore a wrap-round skirt called a schenti which was tied at the waist using a belt. The length of the schenti varied depending on the fashion of the time and your status. In the Old Kingdom they were short while in the Middle Kingdom they were calf length. Throughout the ages the schenti worn by ordinary men remained short and plain. From about 1550BC (the beginning of the New Kingdom) it was fashionable for upper class men to have the garment pleated. Egyptian women wore full length tubular dresses with shoulder straps known as a kalasiris. This remained the basic type of garment worn by ordinary women for thousands of years. Like the men the clothing of wealthy women became more elaborate during the New Kingdom. It became fashionable for rich women have their dresses pleated or draped. Rich Egyptian men and women decorated their clothes, wore jewellery and wore elaborate wigs often made from real human hair. The most common used fabric for clothing was linen, woven from fibres obtained from the flax plant, extensively grown in ancient Egypt. Linen came in several grades from the unbleached schenti or kalasiris worn by a peasant to the almost transparent material draped over the bodies of the wealthy. It was not the only material in use: papyrus was used for aprons and sandals; wool was woven into shawls and other outer garments. Leather was used to make sandals and sometimes a mans schenti. The Romans introduced Chinese silk bought from Byzantium via the Silk Road. The quality of cloth denoted your position in the pecking order. The higher a persons social rank the better quality cloth he or she wore. Men and women of all ranks went bare-chested, but for an elite Egyptian complete nakedness was not acceptable, only children, slaves and peasants could be seen without clothes. Such an Egyptian would not raise an eyebrow at the sight of thousands of naked slaves working on the construction of a monument. It was quite likely that these slaves were not provided with clothes. Children of all classes did not wear clothes until they reached puberty. After then they usually wore the same clothes as adults. Most Ancient Egyptians went barefoot most of the time but wore sandals for special occasions or if their feet were likely to get hurt. The sandals worn by the poor were made of woven papyrus or palm while those worn by the rich were made of leather. Dyeing techniques with natural indigenous ingredients had been developed in Egypt but was not well evolved because dyeing linen was difficult. The colours were loaded with symbolism: green symbolized life and youth; yellow was the symbol of gold, the flesh of the immortal gods.

We have very little knowledge of this. What has surfaced, is that the Ancient Pharoh period Egyptians appeared to have a moneyless economy. There is no evidence of any sort of coinage, paper money ( they did develop paper, by the way) or anything remotely like Banks, storage vaults for Gold Ingots, etc. As far as we know they had a moneyless economy- Howver they also had slaves for the heavy labor. From what has surfaced the sophisticated Egyptians were quite intellectual and interestingy enough did not have a formal judicial system either. Crime was very low and not a major social problem of the society- contrast Robin Hood, Black Bart, et al! And all this in a Pagan society. It is interesting.

What ways were temples important to Egypts economy?
Nothing, really, other than the name priest, and the fact that they both offer sacrifice. In the ancient world a priest was a priest because he offered sacrifice to the Gods. In the modern world, a priest still offers sacrifice, but in this case, he offers the sacrifice of the Son to the Father, a perpetual sacrifice. See the book of Daniel where God prophecies the perpetual sacrifice to be offered in His Name, which is prophesying the Christian period, the end times.
What was Ancient Egypts atmosphere like?
Well, first off, many things in history (such as dates, names, etc.) are somewhat controversial, so Ill try to give the closest answer I can. The Old Kingdom existed around 2650/3000-2150/2040 BC. The first pharaoh of the Old Kingdom, King Djoser, reigned from about 2691-2625 BC, which would therefore mean that the The Third Dynasty probably originated around that time. I hope this was helpful 🙂 P.S. – I still advise that you check it out. In history, it is always better to double-check your info.

pharaoh Then Upper Class and preist and nobles Middle Class Lower Class.* HOPE IT HELPED (^_^) The pharaoh – The pharaoh was believed to be a living god and he/she controlled over all of egypt. The people of egypt relied on him to; Keep order, defend from invading countries, make sure there are sufficient offerings for the gods so that there would be the annual flooding of the Nile. The Nobles – The nobles would rule over their own region of egypt (nomes). They were responsible for making local laws and keeping order in their region. Merchants, Craftsmen and Scribes – Scribes were the people of egypt who could read and write, becoming a scribe was extremely hard and only a few passed in scribe school. Pottery makers, leather workers, sculptors, painters, weavers, jewellery makers, shoe makers, tailors and farmers were the main workers in Egypt (in the middle class). Craftsmen usually worked together in workshops. Peasants – Peasants were the lower class of egypt, they were either slaves or just worked at home, slaves were usually farmers or entertainers. Hope this helped, just an improvement on previous answer… 😛
