    You are probably referring to Atenism, which was the monotheistic worship of the sun instated by the Egyptian pharoh Akhenaten. It was quite a beautiful religion, but it was completely dismantled after his death. It may have had an effect on Judaism, however.

    Amenism is the worship of the Egyptian god Amen or Amen-Ra (sometimes spelled Amun-Ra). He's the sun-god. It's also sometimes called Egyptian monotheism. I'm not really sure why.
