Sun The Sun was the physical manifestation of Re, the chief god of the pharaohs. Yet the Sun was also viewed as a ball of fire that sailed across the cosmic ocean in a boat, only to sink beneath the Earth to face a terrifying underworld filled with demons. During this nightly journey, Re merged with Osiris, god of the dead, and was reborn at sunrise from Nut, the sky goddess. Egyptians viewed this daily drama of life, death and rebirth not merely as a natural phenomenon but as daily affirmation of life over death. The Sun also represented the Aten, a god who bestowed life through his light. During the reign of the pharaoh Akhenaten, the Aten became the sole official god of Egypt, and the other gods were banished. After Akhenaten's death, however, the older gods returned, and the cult of the Aten was eradicated.
