La Casa de las Aguilas: Un ejemplo de la arquitectura religiosa de Tenochtitlan. Volumes I & II

by Leonardo López Luján

The House of the Eagles was a prominent stage in the religious life of ancient Tenochtitlan. It was the place where the first and last rituals of the reign of Mexica rulers took place: they did penance there before their coronations and their wakes were held there when they died. This spectacular 15th-century building was excavated between 1980 and 1997, by INAH's Proyecto Templo Mayor. The rich data, as well as abundant documentation involving pictographs, written sources, and modern ethnographic studies, are the basis for these two volumes, in which the author carries out a detailed analysis of the House of the Eagles. In Spanish.
