This study of the Temple of Edfu interprets the ontology and theology inherent in its texts, decorations and architecture; these sources are revealed to be expressive of a monistic ontology and a theology of immanence. It also discusses the metaphorical values of the temple as a representation of the world and its cultic functions as a symbol of the creator immanent in his work of creation.
