Connection with Ancient Egypt Edit

Ra was an Egyptian god with the head of an eagle. He was originally a sun god, responsible for traveling by two boats through the physical world and the all the layers of the perilous underworld in order to bring about night and day. His boats were called the Mandjet for the morning and the Mesektet for the evening/night.

Ra had three forms, each of which was also considered a separate god. In the morning, he was the scarab god Khepri, who pushed the sun up. At noon and afternoon, he was Ra. In the evening, he was the ram-headed god Khnum.

In later Dynastic times, Ra and Horus were merged into one god, called Ra/Re-Horakhty, who took on the role of ruler of the sky, sun, earth and underworld. He was briefly replaced by worship of the Aten (sun disk) during Pharaoh Akhenaten's rule, but was later restored as the chief sun deity after his son Tutankhamen took over the throne.
