This section contains information about Greco-Egyptian religious practice. Greco-Egyptian syncreticism is not a single religious tradition, but rather a continuum of traditions that historically met and merged in Ptolemaic and Greco-Roman Egypt. In it’s modern form there is no central authority, no universal set of beliefs or practices to which all Greco-Egyptian syncreticists ascribe. What binds us together is our love for the Gods of Greece and Egypt, and our interest in forming a bridge between these two great world civilizations whose religious beliefs, practices, and philosophies have continued to inspire men and women down through the centuries.

As such, you will here find essays, reflections and meditations on a wide variety of subjects. The application of classical Greek ethics in the modern world. Micro-farming in honor of Demeter. What it means to be in service to the Gods. The nature of syncretism. The role of icons. And so forth. These essays reflect the varied opinions and experiences of the members of Neos Alexandria.
