What is Kemetic Reform?

Kemetic is a modern term based upon the ancient Egyptian word for their country, Kemet. While 'Kemetic' can mean different things to different groups of people, here it refers to any number of Neo-Pagan or New Religious Movements that focus upon ancient Egyptian-themed worship. As a Kemetic practice that is neither purely Reconstructionist - understood as part of the broader theme of Pagan Reconstructionism - nor 'Orthodox' (which is another tradition), our practice is thus called Kemetic Reform. While basing our liturgy on ancient texts, we also adapt wherever necessary to match the spirit of ancient practice with modern needs.

What's New For 2020?

At this point it almost goes without saying that our world is going through profound changes as we deal with a global pandemic. But in spite of the chaos, here at the Temple of Tutankhamun we're working on adding some long-overdue additions to the site. Be sure to check out the new "Resources for Kids" section in our Egyptology Links, shop for Kemetic altar supplies and books in our Etsy store, Tut's Treasures, and learn more about Kemetic Reform beliefs on our Basics page. There you can also download issues of the Kemetic Reform newsletter, Horizon, as well as two .PDF brochures, "Do Egyptian Pagans Worship Idols?" and "Isis, Not ISIS".

In response to the pandemic, we began streaming Friday evening rituals on YouTube via our Kemetic Independent Channel. You can tune in around 8:30 PM CST (Central US time). Watch a recent broadcast here:

 

 

 

A "Temple of Millions of Years" - The Online Temple of Tutankhamun

In ancient Egypt, it was customary for each Pharaoh to commission a memorial temple in his name. These "Temples of Millions of Years", as Egyptians called them, were places of devotion to the gods during a Pharaoh's lifetime; after his death, they also became commemorative shrines. Famous Pharaohs such as Amunhotep I and Ramesses II were venerated, much as saints are today, in their own memorial temples for centuries after their passing. Tutankhamun's own Temple of Millions of Years was usurped by his successors, then ultimately destroyed. But today, having become the most famous Pharaoh of all time, it is only fitting that Tutankhamun, or "King Tut", have the first Virtual Temple of Millions of Years.

This site began in 2005 as a simple e-shrine with information and a few links about the famous Pharaoh and his world. Over the years, the virtual Temple has expanded to include more information about Egyptian religion, in both ancient and modern contexts. With a small corner of realspace to call our own and a growing circle of friends both on- and offline, our goal is to legally incorporate the Temple as the first Kemetic Reform church, with Tutankhamun as our 'patron saint'.

Now you can even take a 'virtual tour' of a 3D-modeled Temple of Tutankhamun:
