Temple of the World: Egyptian Religion under the Ptolemies
Egyptian religion flourished under the Ptolemaic kings and queens (323–31 BCE). Temples, tombs, papyri, and archaeological finds bear witness to the vigor of native Egyptian religious beliefs and traditions. Ptolemaic Egypt was a multi-cultural society, home to Greeks, Jews, Nubians, and other ethnic groups. In this talk, discover how native Egyptians interacted with peoples in many spheres, including that of religion.
