Deity of the Day for August 10th is ATUM

ATUM

 

The first of the gods, the self-created. By sheer will, Atum formed himself out of the stagnant waters of Nun. Atum was bisexual and was sometimes called “the great He-She.” The Egyptians had two cosmogonies, one taught by the priests at Heliopolis and the other by the priests at Memphis. The priests at Memphis taught that Nun and Atum, together with Atum’s children Shu and Tefnut, were aspects or forms of Ptah.
