Egyptian Customs and Beliefs. Ancient Egyptians believed that each person’s soul was immortal. In order for the soul to reach the afterlife a complex, traditional set of customs was required, sometimes ending with mummification. If these rites were not completed the dead would come back to haunt the living in the form of a ghost. In this episode, you will learn about burial customs and what they represented. The nine aspects of the soul. The use of shabti dolls to work for the god Osiris. And the different realms of the afterlife such as the Hall of Truth and the Field of Reeds.
