Egyptian religion flourished under the Ptolemaic kings and queens (323–31 BCE). Temples, tombs, papyri and archaeological finds bear witness to the vigor of native Egyptian religious beliefs and traditions. Ptolemaic Egypt was a multicultural society, home to Greeks, Jews, Nubians and other ethnic groups. In this talk, discover how native Egyptians interacted with peoples in many spheres, including that of religion.
