This paper discusses the evolution of the religion of ancient Egypt from its predynastic beginnings, its rise during the time of the great pharaohs of Egypt, and its collapse after the introduction of Christianity by the Romans. It argues that, although the religion took different forms throughout those years, it never completely changed. Instead, there were carryovers through the years as it evolved. It discusses aspects such as animism, cults, animal worship, regional gods, fetishism, and magic.

From the Paper:

"Throughout the history of ancient Egypt, the religion of this land has advanced and changed. Additionally, there was never one universally accepted form of religion practiced throughout the country. Instead, many different forms of religion flourished in Egypt simultaneously. The evolution of the Egyptian's belief in magic, gods, spirits, and other spiritual can be seen from Egypt's pre-dynastic roots to its height of development during the dynastic period. Finally, one may see its breakdown and the spread of a new religion after the invasion of Egypt by the Greeks."
