The Egyptian pantheon includes all the gods created by the falcon-headed Sun god Ra. Egyptian gods include many gods with animal heads (Horus, Set, Anubis, Thoth, Bastet, Sekhmet, Ra) and others with human heads (Osiris, Isis, Nephthys, Amun).
We will see together in this article:
- The gods Ra, Apep, Aten, and Sekhmet involved in the creation of the Universe
- The gods Set, Osiris, Isis, Nephthys, and Horus involved in the tragedy called “myth of Osiris”
- The gods Anubis, Thoth, and Ammit involved in the judgment of the Egyptian dead
- The other important gods: Khepri, Amun, Ptah, Taweret, and Sobek
Let’s begin without further ado by discovering the first of these gods and the creator of the Egyptian world: Ra, the falcon Sun god.
