Isis With Horus At the apex of her influence, this Goddess of Rebirth was worshipped throughout the Greco-Roman world. Her temples were finally closed in the fourth century AD, but her role as Mother of God, as well as many other Christian borrowings from her mythos were assumed by the Virgin Mary. Originally Au Set, a predynastic Egyptian Goddess dating from 3000 BCE., she laid upon the dead body of her husband-brother Osiris (whose annual death symbolized the fertilizing of fields by Nile floodwaters), and conceived Horus, the original Son of God. Her name means throne-woman and she was venerated as inventor of agriculture, law, and medicine, the Mother who placed the sun god Ra in the sky. According to Egyptian scriptures, In the beginning there was Isis, Oldest of the Old, the Goddess from whom all becoming arose.

The distinction exists between the primitive or predynastic element in the Egyptian religion and the Asiatic element. This element was of a solar character undoubtedly, and was introduced into Egypt by the Followers of Horus, or the Blacksmiths, who invaded the country, and conquered the natives, and settling down there, built up the great dynastic civilization which we call Egyptian.
