Today’s Agenda!!

  • Presentations
  • Review
  • Quiz

1. Religion was based on tradition, which means they do things over and over again.

  • Ancient Egyptian religion was strongly influenced by tradition, which caused the Egyptian people to
    • A. Resist change in their society
    • B. Rule freely based on religious beliefs
    • C. Transfer political power to the priests
    • D. Build pyramids and monuments to their pharaohs

2. These are both untrue about Egyptians

3. Although we know this is true, Egyptians did not build pyramids or monuments because of tradition, they did it because the pharaohs asked them to.

  • To answer this question:
  • Figure out what the question is asking
  • Cross out answers that we know are incorrect
  • Think about everything you learned and what makes sense

-Many of you asked what “prominent” means. This means important, but even if you did not know, you still could have easily answered the question.

-The Egyptians strong belief in all EXCEPT…this means the one thing they DID NOT believe in!!

  • The prominent religious traditions of ancient Egyptian people were their strong belief in all of the following except
    • A. Divine kingship
    • B. Monotheism
    • C. The afterlife
    • D. Polytheism

What could you have remembered in order to answer this question?? Think about the pharaohs role in society.

  • Egypt’s king
    • A. Served as a link between the divine and common people
    • B rarely participated in religious rituals
    • C. Served the committee of gods that elected him
    • D. Inherited the throne through marriage

The pharaoh was the person who was in charge of taking care of the religion. He was known as a god-king, so he joined religion with the rest of society.


This is not true. Egyptians traded a lot, and they loved gold and ivory for jewelry!!


This is not true. We never talked about daily ceremonies.

  • Egyptian religion was so much a part of the Egyptian way of life that the people of Egypt
    • A. Were unconcerned with the acquisition of material goods or riches
    • B. Worshiped their leaders in ceremonies conducted three times each day
    • C. Interpreted every occurrence as a result of natural and supernatural forces
    • D. Only mummified religious leaders who were considered gods

This is not true. Pharaohs and wealthy people were the main people mummified.

True!! Egyptians believed that every occurrence was because of the gods. Floods, storms, births, deaths, etc.

  • When archaeologists studied cemeteries, they learned that
    • A. Most people died defending their community
    • B. Cities had different social groups
    • C. Religion was not important in the peoples’ lives
    • D. Only the wealthy were buried in cemeteries

Only pharaohs and very wealthy people could be mummified and buried in pyramids. They found gold and goods with them. Most of the common people were simply buried in the sand. This shows historians that there were different social classes in Egypt, which is something we already know!!

  • All this question is asking is, what did historians learn when they saw how people were buried.
  • What do we know about burials in Egypt??
