The Egyptian religion was the basis from which the Egyptian civilization had been derived. It was the religious beliefs that determined the elements that formed the culture and societal values. Without the ancient Egyptian religion there would not be much to talk about of the Egyptians. There would not be any great pyramids neither would have existed the temples, tombs or mummies.
Religion is behind each and every element of the Egyptian art, culture and political structure and it was extremely important to the ancient Egyptians. Due to the fact that their religion had a great influence on their tradition they resisted any kind of change. They “did not question the beliefs which had been handed down to them; they did not desire change in their society” (David 81).
