Declared Aten as the one true god, ruling over the other gods; Set, Isis, Geb and Osiris. Akhenaton passes away and his successor restored old pantheon of gods but kept the imagery Akhenaton created. Cultural Influences (cont):  Cultural Influences (cont) Persia Zoroaster, a prophet, declared that only one God be the true god worth sending prayers to – Ahura Mazda. Government protested, Zoro relented and brought back old members of the pantheon at diminished roles. Assigned old gods diminished roles under Ahura Mazda. Renamed as “Bounteous immortals” and “Good Spirits” Alexander the Great decimated most fractal religions and their offshoots. Zoroaster and followers were hurting. Fled to India, where they began calling themselves the Parsees. Eventually the religion assimilated into Hindi. Believed their God, Ahura Mazda, was dead but his assistants and brethren continue on for him. Cultural Influences (cont):  Cultural Influences (cont) Native Americans Angels have bird-like aspects Often seen as messengers or assassins for the Gods.
