Egyptian Gods and Goddesses
The ancient Egyptians are believed to have had as many as two thousand Gods and Goddesses.
The roles of these Gods were varied, some of them being major deities and controlling important aspects of Egyptian life whereas others were minor deities and held very specific roles such as looking after child birth or were demons and genies. In time more detail will be added to each of the individual Egyptian Gods and Goddesses to cover mythology, statues and history. There will also be more Gods and Goddesses added.
