Roles Of Women In Ancient Greece
Both civilizations were polytheistic. Egypt believed that their Gods is who they should thank for the Nile river, the moon and sun rising and setting, the cycle of the four seasons, birth, death, and so on. (Thompson) In Egypt they were not very strict about religion, whereas in Greece they were “demanded worship and respect from the community as a whole and were quick to strike down any who became self-righteous and overconfident” according to Everyday Life. Greece believed in twelve Gods who represented wisdom, the sun, poetry, love, the seas, and earthquakes. Greece often had large festivals celebrating their Gods.
