But this period was brief, only ca 15 years and may, in fact, not have had any large effect
outside of the royal court.

For people in general, life probably went on as it had always done, they kept on praying to
their same local deities and was largely unaffected by the changes on the national level.

After Akhenaten´s death the priesthood of Amun reinstalled the old religious practice, tore
down the temples to Aten and the Amarna period became an exception in the history of
Ancient Egypt.

The idea of a single overall creator-god did exist before the time of Akhenaten.

IT is found on the stela of the brothers Suti and Hor (British Museum), where the sun god is
said to be a supreme deity expressed as different gods like Re, Amun and Heru (Horus).

But it is during the time of Akhenaten that this idea reaches its foremost expression.
