Thursday Theories – Changing my Religion

I was inspired to write about this after watching a documentary about Nefertiti. I know a bit about Ancient Egyptian Rulers, however, how there Religion worked, I’m not “hot” on.

I was mainly watching it to see if they found Nefertiti, which before I got tot the end of it, I thought to myself “Well that’d be all over the news”. So ultimately they did not find her…Yet.

What fascinated myself though, was under her and her husbands (Akhenaten) rule, they changed the whole Egyptian religion. From worshipping a number of Gods, like the Ancient Greeks and Rome, to worshipping, just one God, just like Christianity. After he died though, they got “rid” of his Religion and went back to the old one, where they worshipped several.

Although Nefertiti and Akhenaten governed over Ancient Egypt at a time of unprecedented wealth, their new religion unsettled the empire. … However, she was also largely hated because of her active leadership in Akhenaten’s sun-oriented religion

It’s just interesting to me within one Religion how many times they all change.
