Isis(Ancient was a majorgoddessinancient Egyptian religionwhose worship spread throughouttheGreco-Roman world. Isis was first mentioned in theOldKingdom(c. 2686–2181BCE) as one of the main characters of theOsirismyth, in which sheresurrects her slain husband, the divine kingOsiris, and produces and protects his heir,Horus. She was believed to help the dead entertheafterlifeas she had helped Osiris, and she wasconsidered the divine mother of thepharaoh, who was likened to Horus. Hermaternalaid was invoked in healingspellstobenefit ordinary people. Originally, she played a limited role in royal ritualsandtemplerites,although she was more prominent infunerary practicesand magical texts. She was usuallyportrayed in art as a human woman wearing a throne-likehieroglyphon her head. During theNew Kingdom(c. 1550–1070 BCE), as she took on traits that originallybelonged toHathor,the preeminent goddess of earlier times, Isis came to be portrayed wearingHathor's headdress: a sun disk between the horns of a cow.
In the first millennium BCE, Osiris and Isis became the mostwidely worshipped of Egyptian deities, and Isis absorbed traits from many othergoddesses. Rulers in Egypt and its neighbor to the south,Nubia, began to build temples dedicated primarilyto Isis, and her temple atPhilaewas a religious center for Egyptians andNubians alike. Her reputedmagical powerwas greater than that of all other gods,and she was said to protect the kingdom from its enemies, govern the skies andthe natural world, and have power overfateitself.
In theHellenistic period(323–30 BCE), when Egypt was ruled and settled byGreeks, Isis came to be worshipped by Greeks andEgyptians, along with a new god,Serapis.Their worship diffused into the wider Mediterranean world. Isis's Greekdevotees ascribed to her traits taken fromGreekdeities, such as theinvention of marriage and the protection of ships at sea, and she retainedstrong links with Egypt and other Egyptian deities who were popular in theHellenistic world, such as Osiris andHarpocrates.As Hellenistic culture was absorbed byRomein the first century BCE, thecultof Isis became a part ofRoman religion. Her devotees were a small proportion oftheRoman Empire's population but were found all across its territory. Herfollowing developed distinctivefestivalssuch as theNavigium Isidis,as well asinitiation ceremoniesresembling those of otherGreco-Roman mystery cults. Some of her devotees said she encompassedall feminine divine powers in the world.
The worship of Isis was ended by the rise ofChristianityin the fourth and fifth centuries CE.Her worship may have influenced Christian beliefs and practices such astheveneration of Mary, but the evidence for this influence is ambiguous and oftencontroversial. Isis continues to appear inWesternculture, often as apersonificationof natureor the feminineaspect of divinity.
