Things Sacred to the Gods
« on: December 21, 2013, 02:08:42 am »
In every Polytheistic religion I know of, the Gods have things which are sacred to them, whether it be a place, a plant, a food, an object, or what have you. What are such things which are sacred to the following Egyptian Gods?:

Khnum
Sobek
Horus
Djehuty
Sekhmet
Bast

Thanks,
Chris.

Em Hotep, Chris.

The first place you should check is here:    Wepwawet Wiki.  This page is maintained by Naisenu, a KO member.

Also, in regards to Heru (Horus), which one were you interested in?  There are many Names with that name, the 2 primary ones being Heru-Wer (Heru the Elder), son of Nut and Geb; and Heru-sa-Aset (Heru son of Aset (and Wesir)).

If you don't already have it, I recommend purchasing The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt, by Richard Wilkinson.  It's a handy introductory book with lovely photos.  amazon link  

After you've reviewed at least the Wiki, let us know if you need further information.

Blessings and Senebty,

Tahai
