Ancient Egyptian religion held great significance over mummification and burial practices. As time advanced, we see a shift in different dynasties and religions. With these changes in dynasties and religion, the techniques of mummification became more advanced. Researchers have examined ancient Egyptian mummification processes in order to improve our understanding of their religion, beliefs, and daily lives. This research examines the changes in mummification within the changes of dynasties and religion. In this particular research, I will be looking into the 31 dynasties or ruling houses to examine the changes in mummification and religion. I will only be looking at the dynasties that show major changes and influences in religion and mummification. I also will be looking at the importance of gods, origin stories, and myths. It’s important to study the religion of the ancient Egyptians due to how much influence it held over mummification and their ideas and ideologies about death.
Understanding the significance of religion and mummification can provide an understanding of their technological advancements, such as medcine. As for my research, I expect to find solid information on this study that relates back to how religion played and beliefs played a role in the changes that took place in mummification.
