Monte Sagrado-Templo Mayor

by Alfredo López Austin and Leonardo López Luján

An indispensable contribution to our understanding of Mesoamerican religious thought, a tradition born with the first maize agriculturalists and a vigorous oral and ritual tradition still alive today. This profusely illustrated book studies the Mesoamerican conception of Monte Sagrado as expressed throughout the centuries in stone, clay, architecture, painting, and in ceremonies, poems and sentences. Based on multiple images and descriptions, the prototypical vision of Monte Sagrado is reconstructed as the basis for analyzing one of its most important representations, the Templo Mayor de Mexico-Tenochtitlan. In Spanish.
