Temples of Power asks to what degree Egyptian cult was part of Egypt’s success story. Through Akhenaten’s ill fated revolution we discover just how powerful Egypt’s religious tradition really was. Egyptian cult prevails even when threatened by the pharaohs. The cult was the backbone of the country’s civilization; it was seen as the guarantor of the worldly order, and thereby helped to maintain inner peace and stability.
