Maat the Egyptian Goddess of Justice

Egyptian Goddess Maat

Maat was the Goddess of truth, justice and reality. She symbolized the balance between the antitheses in Egyptian life between Upper and Lower Egypt, between the fertile valley and the desert, and so between good and evil. She was thus the basis of civilization and Egyptian strength. Maat was said to reign when the kingdom was unified and when men were peaceful and content with their lot, performing their duties of righteous conduct as laid down in the divine order. Without Maat creation could not be sustained and the divine intention was thwarted. The pharaoh was the chief upholder of Maat, and when he could present her to the gods he was giving them the most precious thing, sometimes offered instead of the ritual meal. For the gods themselves lived by Maat. She was said to be the daughter of Ra and the wife of Tuth, having accompanied them in the solar barque when they emerged from Nun for the first time.
