Isis, or Isi, in the Egyptian language Aset, is an Egyptian deity belonging to the religion of Ancient Egypt. She Goddess of life, healing, fertility, magic and medicine, she is originally from Behbeit el-Hagar, in the Nile Delta. She was originally a celestial deity, associated with royalty for having been primarily the personification of the throne as shown by her cartouche which includes the hieroglyph “Throne“, she was part of the Enneade. Isis was one of the main goddesses of the ancient Egyptian religion, whose cult spread throughout the Greco-Roman world.
She was first mentioned during her ancient reign as one of the protagonists of the myth of Osiris, in which she resurrects her husband, the Divine King Osiris, after her assassination, and creates and protects the she heir to her Horus. Her relationships with humans were based on her actions in her myth. It was believed that she helped the dead to pass into the afterlife as she had helped Osiris. She was considered the divine mother of the pharaoh, who was compared to Horus, and her maternal behavior was invoked in the healing spells. She originally had a limited function in royal and temple rites, although she was more important within funerary practices and magical texts. During the first millennium BC, Osiris and Isis became the most revered Egyptian Gods. Rulers in Egypt and Nubia began building temples mostly dedicated to Isis, and her temple in Philae was a religious center for both Egyptians and Nubians. Isis brought within herself many traits of other deities, particularly Hator, an important goddess of previous centuries. The magical powers attributed to Isis were greater than those of the other Gods, and she was said to protect the kingdom from her enemies, to rule the heavens and the natural world, and to have power over fate itself. During the Hellenistic period, when Egypt was ruled by the Greeks, Isis began to be worshiped by both the Greeks and Egyptians, along with a new god, Serapis. Their cult spread throughout the Mediterranean world.
The Greek followers of Isis attributed to her new traits taken from other Greek Gods, such as the invention of marriage and the protection of ships. Additionally, she retained strong ties to Egypt and other Egyptian gods who were popular within the Hellenistic world, such as Osiris and Harpocrates. When the Hellenistic culture was absorbed by Rome in the first century BC, the cult of Isis became part of the Roman religion. Her followers were a small part of the population of the Roman Empire, but signs of her cult have been found in many of her territories. Her cult developed distinctive festivals, such as Navigium Isidis, along with initiation ceremonies similar to those of other Greco-Roman Mystery Cults. Some of her followers claimed that Isis’s divine powers surpassed all others of the ancient world. The cult of Isis ended with the rise of Christianity during the 4th and 5th centuries AD. Her worship may have influenced some Christian beliefs and practices, such as the Worship of Mary, but the evidence for this influence is ambiguous and often controversial. Thereafter, Isis continued to appear in Western culture, particularly within modern esoteric and paganism, often as a personification of the nature or feminine aspect of divinity.
