What role did the priests play in the society of the peoples of ancient Europe?
August 28, 2021
They played a minor role as intermediaries between people and the will of the gods. They were rarely addressed and rarely listened to. We can say that religion was a formality for most of the population. This was not at all the same as in ancient Egypt, where the priests were highly respected and had a lot of power. Even Pharaoh himself was considered a living god – the son of the god Ra. Ultimately, the ancient states gradually forget the old gods, and then adopt a new religion – Christianity.
