The structure of "a clear distinction between what nowadays one would consider the very distinct callings of priest and physician" is "a clear distinction between A and B."

A is the calling/profession of priest and B is the calling of physician?

Thanks in advance

Magic and religion were an integral part of everyday life in ancient Egypt. Evil gods anddemons were thought to be responsible for many ailments, so often the treatments involved asupernatural element, such as beginning treatment with an appeal to a deity. There does not appear to have existed a clear distinction between what nowadays one would consider the very distinct callings of priest and physician. The healers, many of them priests of Sekhmet, often used incantations and magic as part of treatment.
