The practice of creating new gods by combining them with old gods was called 'syncretism', which meant the blending of religious beliefs and practices to form a new system. Atum was first worshipped as a minor, local god.

The names of the cults represented the number of major gods worshipped in the cult and the location of the cult centre.

The status of Amun drastically changed during a religious revolution when the Pharaoh Akhenaten established the sun god Aten as the only god of Egypt. The people of ancient Egypt were forced to change from a religion where they worshipped many gods, to a religion where they worshipped only one god.
The Pharaoh Akhenaten used the might and power of the Egyptian military to destroy the old religion, its gods and the powerful priesthood. They particularly wanted to get rid of people worshipping Amun as the national god.
The Temple of Karnak which was in Thebes and was dedicated to Amun was closed and the priests were thrown out and Akhenaten ordered the statues of the old gods to be destroyed.
Aten was worshipped for 16 years from to BC until the death of Akhenaten. The son of Akhenaten was Tutankhamen. The boy king became the Pharaoh and was forced by the powerful priests of Amun to leave his home in Armana where they tried to get rid of all traces of Atenism and Akhenaten.
