Kemetic Recon

How do we reconstruct the religion of Egypt? Unlike other Recon paths their isn’t a lot of information other than for temples, funerary functions, and the pharaoh.  Unfortunately in this day and age, a true Egyptian temples would be impossible to support and while some groups do have a Pharaoh they function more as high priests and not mighty lords.

So what things do we reconstruct. While there are plenty of calendars out there, I can’t find a single source detailing how the celebrations were done, not to mention how to recalibrate it based on the stars.  So holy days are out for the most part. Additionally hardly anything is known about how your average Egyptian worshiped. We know they probably had an shrine at home, open public shrines, and ear stellas at the temple walls but not what they actually did with them. Also what about the average or poor persons afterlife, quite a few of them weren’t mummified.

All we know is that most Egyptians were pious and we can get a rough idea of their ethics from the wisdom texts.

So for all you Kemetic Recons, what has been reconstructed because I would greatly like to know.

(note I, and it seems most of the members of the kemetic orthodoxy are not Recons but revivalists which seem to be a different animal.)

A few questions (cross posted)

Evening all!!

I have a few questions and I am hoping that someone will be able to help.

I am currently in my 4th year of my Egyptology Diploma, and I am writing my dissertation..:) The title of which is provisionally Changing aspects of Jackal Gods, from pre-dynastic period to Greaco-Roman Egypt. This dissertation will concentrate on Anubis and His role in Egypt, which is not only interesting from a religious point of view, but also an academic point of view.

What I am looking for is academic evidence of the melding of Wepwawet and Anubis (as is traditional in HoN). I've not found any relgious text, nor historical evidence to back this up.. I have found a relationship between Wep and Khenti-Amentiu though.

What Jackal Gods are there? I have found the following:-
Wepwawet
Khenti-Amentiu
Duamutef
Input (female form of Anubis)
Anubis

I am 100% sure that there is another form of Wep called Seb? Seq? Sed?

Thanks guys..:)

Musings on ma'at...

There is something that has been niggling in the back of my mind for a long time now, and it is becoming increasingly likely that it is going to develop into a very important theory in my spiritual path, and I need to put it down in a written format so I can really start to play with the concepts entailed therein. I must hasten to assure everyone that this isn't a finished theory, merely something I am playing with and it will likely be greatly changed by the time I come to consider it ready to be used in any real way.

On ma'at and asfetCollapse )

London Kemetics?

Hi all,

I am looking to contact any other kemetics in the London/Surrey area of the UK. I am reasonably sure there may be a temple running in London. I am not sure I want to actually join another temple, as I am happy with finding my own path worshipping solo for now, but it'd be great to be linked with others of the same beliefs.

Does anyone know of any Kemetics in London?
