Kushite rule in Thebes lasted from 750 BC to 656 BC, and saw the revival of its fortunes in what was an era of turmoil and division in Egypt. Looking at structures of power and religious hierarchies, this chapter points to a religious renaissance that focussed on the cult of Amun. It also sheds light on building works, architecture, and burial practices of the Kushites.

Keywords:   Kushites, Thebes, Amun, Religious hierarchies, Power structures, Burial practices, Architecture
