Goddess Maat and Scribes

Scribes held prestigious positions in ancient Egyptian society in view of their grandness in the transmission of religious, political and cheap information. Thoth was the patron of scribes who is discovered as the one "who breaks Maat and reckons Maat; who beds Maat and gives Maat to the doer of Maat". In texts such as the Teaching of Amenemope the scribe is recommended to come the precepts of Maat in his individual life as well as his work. The exhortations to live according to Maat are such that these forms of instructional texts have been represented as (Maat Literature).
