The ancient Egyptian religion has always fascinated the mind. How did it develop and what connection does it have to the politics, economics, and landscape of Egypt? During this lively class you will explore the religion and religious architecture of ancient Egypt, from the Predynastic Period through the New Kingdom including the Amarna interlude and the heretic pharaoh Akhenaton. Come ready to learn and to engage in discussion.
