Isis(Ancient Greek:Ἶσις, more likelyAset) is a goddess inAncient Egyptianreligious beliefs, whose worship spread throughout theGreco-Roman world. She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic. She was the friend and the downtrodden, and she listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats, and rulers.Isis is often depicted as the mother ofHorus, the hawk-headed god of war and protection (although in some traditions Horus's mother wasHathor). Isis is also known as protector of the dead and goddess of children.
The name Isis means "Throne".Her headdress is a throne. As the personification of the throne, she was an important representation of the pharaoh's power. The pharaoh was depicted as her child, who sat on the throne she provided. Hercultwas popular throughout Egypt, but her most importanttempleswere at Behbeit El-Hagar in theNile delta, and, beginning in the reign with Nectanebo I (380–362 BCE), on the island ofPhilaein Upper Egypt.
In the typical form of her myth, Isis was the first daughter ofGeb, god of the Earth, andNut, goddess of the Sky, and she was born on the fourthintercalary day. She married her brother,Osiris, and she conceived Horus with him. Isis was instrumental in the resurrection of Osiris when he was murdered bySet. Using her magical skills, she restored his body to life after having gathered the body parts that had been strewn about the earth by Set.
This myth became very important during the Greco-Roman period. For example it was believed that theNile Riverflooded every year because of the tears of sorrow which Isis wept for Osiris. Osiris's death and rebirth was relived each year through rituals. The worship of Isis eventually spread throughout the Greco-Roman world, continuing until the suppression ofpaganismin the Christian era.The popular motif of Isis suckling her son Horus, however, lived on in a Christianized context as the popular image of Mary suckling the infant son Jesus from the fifth century onward.
