Egypt Exploration Organization hosts a presentation by renown Egyptologist Dr. Teeter, who will discuss Popular Religion in Ancient Egypt. Much of what we know about the Ancient Egyptian religion reflects the relationship of the king & the gods. This information comes primarily from the great temples and their endless scenes of decorations. What relevance did the temples have for the religion of the common people? The lecture will discuss the religious practices of the ordinary Egyptians, including their involvement with, and access to the temples, the role of private cults, and the impact of religion upon the daily life of the average Egyptian.
Dr. Teeter is the author of a wide range of scholarly and popular articles, and also the author of a number of general interest books on Ancient Egypt. She has curated several museum exhibits, and was Past President of the American Research Center in Egypt.
The lecture will be held at a private home in Sherman Oaks.
