Priests

W921In understanding the function of priests we need to realise that there was no exact equivalent of priest as we would understand. Priests did not preach or care for a group of people and they were not ‘messengers of god’. The term ‘priest’ is a modern translation for a variety of religious offices connected with the temple and funerary rites.

The Egypt Centre has a number of items relating to the women priests who provided music in the temple.
