The Snake who Was God

2 Feb

The article is out now in the current issue of Nile Magazine. I discuss in it snake worship in ancient Egypt within the context of an old struggle between monotheism and its ancient rival, polytheism.

It was inspired by my sons’ fascination with a sand snake called Sandy which we have been visiting regularly in the reptile pen at a local animal farm since last summer. Written in the spirit of the ancient wisdom!
