Title: God's Manifestations

Correct me if I am wrong,

Kemetic Orthodoxes believe that God descends and manifests into many other distinct Gods and Goddesses.

Also, was this the common form of worship in ancient Egypt?

KO Is a polytheist religion, so technically it's more about different gods existing, though most got their start from an initial Creator deity (although there are many creation myths and Creator deities to pick from).

So I wouldn't really say it's necessarily a matter of "god" manifesting as many deities, though some make choose to view it that way.

As for antiquity, it also depends. There are parts of AE history where the worship was more polytheistic, many times it was monolatrous, and towards the later periods, it became henotheistic in many ways. So really, all forms of interpretation or worship are valid when it comes to NTRW.
