But the Persian Empire was itself faltering. In 332 BCE, Egypt was conquered by the armies of the Macedonian king Alexander the Great. Soon the nation came under the control of Alexander's general Ptolemy and his successors. The Ptolemies adopted the powers, titles, and symbols of the pharaohs and modeled their rule on the glories and traditions of Egypt's past. CHAPTER TWO Egypt: The Gods and the World They Made The General Character of Ancient Egyptian Religion Egypt provides the best example in the ancient Mediterranean world of a religion and a religious view of political leadership that developed and flourished in relative isolation from outside cultural influences.

The Libyan Bubastids were acculturated to Egyptian ways and Sheshonq was careful to maintain Egyptian traditions, overcoming the initial unease among his subjects that greeted his reign in Upper Egypt. Sheshonq's brief campaign into Syria–Palestine resulted in enough wealth for him and his son Osorkon I (924–889 BCE) to initiate extensive building projects at home. The Bubastids also placed members of the royal family in major high priesthoods. The Bubastid dynasty apparently split after the reign of Takelot II (850–825 BCE).

The Nile flows northward from the union of two of its tributaries, the White Nile and the Blue Nile, near modern Khartoum, ultimately forming a broad fertile delta before joining the Mediterranean Sea. The Egyptian part of the Nile Valley stretches from the First Cataract (the northernmost cataract) of the river at the border of ancient Nubia toward the north. Along this stretch of the Nile the valley is higher than it is farther north, so the land there was known as Upper Egypt. Farther north the valley leading to the broad river delta bordering the Mediterranean Sea was known as Lower Egypt.
