"Thus in the case of divine names and epithets, the nature and sphere of influence of a god are extended as the number of his names increases. By using many epithets the believer testifies to the abundant nature and rich and powerful substance embodied in the god who is addressed. Just as every visible image enhances the reality of the god, so also does every name or epithet that is applied to him- hence the tendency of hymns and litanies to cloak great gods such as Re, Osiris, or Amun in a mass of epithets, and to address and praise them with ever more names...
These are not mere glorifying phrases for the god who is being worshiped; behind every name and every epithet there is a reality of myth or cult, which is often incorporated more directly into the invocations by means of wordplay."
If anyone has original source material to offer on confirming or expanding our understanding of each of these titles, please share! I will be using WikiHeiro to create the images used in this project- it's a wonderful free program for anyone who is interested in sharing hieroglyphic writing through the internet. If you use WikiHeiro, I've found that the best method is to use a screencap to save the word or phrase once it's been laid out in the 'glyphs, then crop and edit the image as needed. Otherwise, each 'glyph will be hosted as an independent image.
For the purposes of this project, all hieroglyphs will be written from left to right.
The best of these titles will be incorporated into a beautiful Bast portrait, which kefi is creating.^_~
