How did religion affect the Ancient Egyptian daily life?


1 Answer


Religion of the Ancient Egyptians effected their daily lives through belief that floods, drought, harvest where caused and affected by the gods/goddesses. As a result they would perform sacrifices, pray, give gifts to temples of worship to make the gods/goddesses happy and ensure successful harvests and floods. In addition, many pharaohs and queens would boast that they were the reincarnation of a god/goddess, as a result the citizens would trust them in decisions being made, and thus affect what the leaders and its people would endeavor, and who they would follow/vote for.
