Estructuras andinas del poder: Ideología religiosa y política

by María Rostworowski (Obras Completas VII)

This classic work by Rostworowski, published originally in 1983, introduced the concept of diarchy among the Inca. Rostworowski associated this notion with a holistic duality of the precolumbian world which ran through religious, ideological, social, and political spheres and had escaped notice in the traditional chronicles. Another novel contribution of this work is the attention given to the role of the female in these processes. The volume helps in understanding the complexity of Precolumbian duality, the fascinating divine couples, and assorted deities and their relationships with temporal rulers. In Spanish.
