Katherine Mullis's Gateway Digital project
What were some of the Ancient Aztec and Ancient Egyptian gods like?
What did the Ancient Aztecs and Ancient Egyptians Rely on their Gods For?
The Aztecs depended on their gods for things like food water, they also expected their gods for favors like going into war and winning. On the other hand the Egyptians asked their gods for a good crop season and luck with farming, but they were also very resourceful, and made irrigation systems to keep their plants alive just in case something went wrong, the Egyptians did ask their gods for success in trading and war though.
How did the Ancient Aztecs and Ancient Egyptians Worship their Gods?
The Aztecs sacrificed people to the gods to please them. They did this because they believed when they came out of a dry season with no crops or rain they believed their gods were disappointed or angry. The Aztecs built temples for these sacrifices. Even if they did have good luck and success in everything they believed they owed their gods and still enacted sacrifices. The Aztecs also performed special dances and rituals for their gods. The Egyptians worshiped their gods with rituals and monuments to make their gods happy, but their were no sacrifices that were done for their gods and their pyramids were more for deceased pharaohs.
