The Underworld Books provide a unique perspective on divine taxonomy, juxtaposing gods with large, formal cults with gods whose existence is predicated on their membership within constellations of other netherworldly divinities. Examination of the ontological status of deities within the “Catalog” of the Book of Amduat and the Great Litany of the Book of Adoring Re in the West (a.k.a. The Litany of Re), including their use in non-funerary contexts, reveals a new definition for daimones within Egyptian theology.
