Isis was a major goddess in Egypt. She was first mentioned in the Old Kingdom (circa 2686 – 2160 BCE) as one of the main characters of the Osiris myth, where she had conquered death through love; she was the symbol of the mysterious creative power which had produced the earth and all living things. Isis was believed to help the dead enter the afterlife as she had helped Osiris, and she was considered the divine mother of the king, who was associated with Horus. Moreover, her maternal tenderness was invoked in healing spells to benefit ordinary people.

The worship of Isis spread throughout the Greco world with the start of the Ptolemaic Period. As Ptolemaic and the wider Hellenistic culture was absorbed by Rome in the first century BCE, the cult of Isis became part of Roman religion.

Early Christians sometimes worshiped before the statues of Isis suckling the infant Horus, seeing in them another form of the ancient and noble myth by which woman, creating all things, becomes at last the Mother of God. The worship of Isis was ended by the rise of Christianity in the fourth and fifth centuries CE. This gave way to Christian full veneration of Mary, who is also revered in Islam for giving virgin birth to Allah’s Prophet Jesus who, according to the Quran, was conceived by her through the intervention of the divine spirit, archangel Gabriel. #egyptpassion #iregipto #egypt#thegiftsofmindfulness #ashleymariemoderndayalchemist
