Does anyone know what's going on with netjer.org? I can't get to it this morning. I could before 7am EDT. Kemet.org is down for me as well.

Merging Wep and Anubis

posted by: jayed in houseofnetjer

Afternoon all.

I am looking evidence of the merging of Wep and Anubis. I know HoN believes and teaches that this took place, which is why I am asking here..:)

Reason I am asking is for my dissertation. I am in the 4th (and final) year of an Egyptology diploma and my dissertation is called 'The evolution of Canine deities from Pre-dynastic Egypt to Greco-Roman Egypt'. Its a project of love for me, as a follower of Anubis I *had* to do that and I felt that it would help me understand my faith and the Netjer more..

So some 50 books and numerous journals later (I kid you not, I am now an expert on Canine gods), I am still to find evidence that Wep merged into Anubis and when. Now I see shared titles, but its also confusing since in the Book of Going Forth by Day (Ani's) it has Anubis as the 'Opener of the Ways', BUT also lists Wep as a separate Netjer totaly (though with a black head). This is the 19th Dynasty, I can also find reference to separate temples of Anubis and Wep in the 20th Dynasty.

Other than that, Budge does say that Anubis and Wep are 'twined' Gods, but that Anubis the Summer Solistce and Wep is the Winter, Anubis the North and Wep the South.

The HoN page on Wep says Over time, Wepwawet's form and functions were absorbed by another jackal-Netjer, Yinepu, who became "Opener of the Ways" when His own titles including Khenty-amentiu ("Foremost of the Westerners") passed to Wesir as premier patron of the deceased. . But I know that Wesir took the title Foremost of the Westerners in about the 5th Dynasty, but Wep was still getting mentioned on his own and his own temple in the 20th Dynasty.

So, does anyone have any references which can back up HoN's statement. You would be helping me greatly and stop me going mad so close to the end:)

I'm seriously considering getting a tattoo for my birthday this year. The thing is, my birthday falls right before Wep Ronpet and I'm not sure about the length of time I may need to heal so I'm considered pure for everything. Do any of you know?

Thanks and senebty.

What next?

I'd post this on the House boards but I am not sure where to post or what to search for.

I've had RPD, I've been Named, I do senut about once a week... what now? I'm a fair neophyte when it comes to knowledge of Kemet (though my Beloved, Seshat, is encouraging me to work on that part) and I have a long way to go, what really does happen now? Like I said, I am working on learning, getting to know my Dad better, interacting with the community, but I feel like there may be something else I am missing in this equation.

Need Some Help, Please

I need some ideas/suggestions/advice.

How can I mourn Kemetic-ally at a modern Christian-based funeral? I'd like to observe Kemetic mourning traditions at my great aunt's funeral, but I don't want to be too offensive to the largely Christian family members.

Does anyone have any ideas? Or can anyone point me to a book or web page where I can get some ideas?

I'd really appreciate it.

I was thinking about the moon, tonight. I was wondering, is fascination/love of the moon a Jackal thing, or is it just me?
