|Netjer: The One God of Ancient Egypt
Last updated: Thursday, December 19, 2002
"Netjer," a Kemetic word meaning "divine power," is the One
Self-Created Deity which manifests in myriads of forms, which we call Names
(Kemetic Orthodoxy is a monolatry, a specialized form of polytheism that is NOT monotheism -- see the "What is Kemetic Orthodoxy?"
page for more information). The actual number of Names, sometimes more simply
(but misleadingly) called "gods" and "goddesses," figures in the thousands.
This glossary is a detailed listing of the most common Names and includes the most accurate information
possible regarding Them. The Kemetic Orthodox approximation of how the Name would be pronounced is
included, along with the mainstream spellings.
A handful of paintings and photos of the Names of Netjer presented for your viewing pleasure.
