Isis is equated with Mary by many, as depictions of Mary with the child Jesus was certainly designed after those of Isis suckling Horus, (see Wallis Budge “The Gods of the Egyptians”, v.2, among others) were adapted to Christian intent. As well a great many early and medieval churches as far west as Britain and north as Finland were reconstructed temples originally dedicated to Isis and containing one or more statues of her with or without the child Jesus. Thus, the so-called “Black Madonna” is often a converted icon of Isis, who is a Black goddess, and some of these remain in European and middle eastern churches even today (see the descriptions in the various Pyramid Texts and the Book of Coming Forth By Day, as well as a great many commentaries by archaeologists and religious writers. It is also worth noting that the Greek and Roman mysteries were based upon the much older Mysteries of Isis.
