"Revered before Banebdjedet, the 'Chamberlain-Priest,' He Who Separates the Two Gods, Prophet of the Ram, Hatmehyt and the Greater and Lesser Enneads, the Chief W'ab Priest who knows his duty . . .

To follow up on last week's post—and by way of tangible proof that Her temples still live—I'd like to share with you the Temple of Isis in my backyard. It is named the House of the Lotuses, Per Sushenu, or the Lotus Temple.

As some of my readers are undoubtedly aware, certain priests, including the Pharaoh, wore panther cloaks as part of their ritual uniform during special ceremonies. The "Opening of the Mouth" ceremony is one such ceremony, and it was arguably the most important of funerary rites. This ceremony allowed the deceased to eat and breathe and speak in the Otherworld. If proper funerary rites were not observed, the deceased's soul was trapped and inert.

Because I write a lot of serious posts, I thought I'd break with formality for a little while and lighten things up a bit with one of my own "Aggressive Devotions," in a similar style to the ever-entertaining Myths Retold! series.
SO THIS ONE TIME ATUM CAME INTO BEING OUT OF NOWHERE FOR LIKE NO REASON. AND THERE WASN'T ANYTHING OTHER THAN ATUM.
Dating cremated bone fragments of men, women and children found at site puts origin of first circle back 500 years to 3,000BC

More than 50,000 cremated bone fragments, of 63 individuals buried at Stonehenge, have been excavated and studied for the first time by a team led by archaeologist Professor Mike Parker Pearson, who has been working at the site and on nearby monuments for decades.
