The fundamental structure of religious thought was the balance between chaos and order. Ancient Egyptian religion appears to have been an ever-changing school of thought that grew and shrank as was necessary; structured around certain traditions, it adapted itself to its own needs, while always maintaining the balance between order and disorder.

Perhaps the difficulty in understanding the ancient Egyptian religion is frustrated by there never having been a need for it to explain itself; it was accepted by everybody that the world, and everything in it, was created by the gods, and there was only one priest and that was the king. Further reading of the Amarna letters shows that the Egyptians had officials stationed in garrisons throughout the vassal states who dealt with the regional kings when necessary. A large number of letters are reports back to the crown: pledges of loyalty, assurances that orders have been carried out, and statements that cities were safe and guarded.

It also has to be made clear that, for the most part, what remains of the letters is only one half of a dialogue. The incoming messages are plentiful, but the outgoing dispatches from the palace are, to say the least, thin on the ground. The change of kingship from Amenhotep III to his son was an open invitation to insurrection for some of the outlying vassals; this is when we see the start of the letters begging for aid, and it is highly likely that if similar correspondence had survived from earlier reigns the same sort of pleading requests would have been found.

Letters from the king to various subjects show his complete grasp of what was going on and his demands for answers from unruly vassals were strongly worded:.

Pharaoh Akhenaten: An Alternative View of the Heretic King

Perform your service for the king …and you will live. It was a year of festival as depicted in the tombs at Amarna, where foreign dignitaries brought gifts of precious metals, weapons, wild animals and even slaves. These scenes give lie to the idea that the king had lost all those lands previously won by his illustrious ancestors. However, it cannot be denied that the special relationship with the Mitanni came to an end as the Egyptian inaction allowed them to be completely overrun by the Hittites.

Akhenaten depicted as a sphinx at Amarna.

CC BY 2. Much has been written about Akhenaten and sun worship, but Akhenaten's religion was not that—it was an understanding of a creator deity, best represented by the rays of the sun; the intangible essence of sunlight giving and maintaining life in the world, with Akhenaten and his queen its high priests.

In a way, Akhenaten was right in that it is the light and energy from the Sun that maintains life on Earth. Akhenaten was much more of a king than he has been portrayed over the last hundred years or so. Akhenaten, Nefertiti and their children. It depicts Akhenaten making offerings to the Aten.

It was indeed a long time brewing, because the Egyptians and all the nations around them knew of the shift, and the Cult of the Bull wasn't ready to let go, as the Cult of the Ram gained strength. The nascent Cult of the Ram got chased out of Egypt, hence the Exodus story. Interesting article and interesting point of view.

Thank you! Always admired Akhenaten as an unconventional thinker and a supporter of great new art. My attention was caught — as for so many - by the wonderful bust of his wife Nefertiti, whom I've seen first time at the age of six in Berlin. In contrast, Akhenaten's depictions lead to speculations of sicknesses and genetic defects, what subsequently make think about his possible imbecility. Never watched him as imbecile, in contrary he looks very powerful to me.

Akhenaten obviously didn't and doesn't fit the usual ideal of manly power and beauty and wasn't able to mask it as his predecessors leastwise tried to. And his Kingship was endangered by the circumstances described in the article here.

Maybe this fox made a virtue out of necessity by installing a new artististic direction and with this a new male beauty ideal. As Queen Elizabeth I. Dressed in expensive and glittering gowns and declaring a bald forehead as a new fashion, she appeared to her court and folk beautiful too. Or perhaps only nobody dared to say different. Well, all this doesn't excuse Akhenaten's exploit of children, who probably built up his new city Amarna, even though it might have been 'contemporary' to drive child slaves into their deaths.

The "whole army of Egypt" drowned too, according to Exodus, so the prevalent power of the ancient world has a crisis - no pharaoh, no successor, no army. The elder Priest left to hold the fort, Ay, marries Amenhotep second wife, mother of Tut's younger half-brother, for legitimacy, and "hold the fort" for seven years until the kid can step up. All without letting on that there was no army if people stopped paying tribute to Egypt At 14, the young Amenhotep iv is made Pharoah.

As soon as he has consolidated his power, he boots the traditional gods of Egypt, changes his name to Akenaten, and tries his best to follow the God he saw embarrass the traditional in the plagues I truly enjoyed reading this article and it has given me new thoughts on this pharaoh and his time.
