The Goddess in Egypt

Review "The Goddess in Egypt".

Sky Goddess Nut With her mouth in the western sky and her womb in the eastern sky, Nut was the great facilitator of the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth as it played out in the heavens. When the sun, moon, and stars disappeared from the sky, it was often said that Nut had swallowed them. When they reappeared, she had given birth to them once more.

An extensive article about Nut is available at Wikipedia.

Encyclopedia Britannica says: "Nut, in Egyptian religion, a goddess of the sky, vault of the heavens, often depicted as a woman arched over the earth god Geb. Most cultures of regions where there is rain personify the sky as masculine, the rain being the seed which fructifies Mother Earth. In Egypt, however, rain plays no role in fertility; all the useful water is on the earth (from the Nile River). Egyptian religion is unique in the genders of its deities of earth and sky. As the goddess of the sky, Nut swallowed the sun in the evening and gave birth to it again in the morning."
