Who were the Mayans? Where and how did they live? What did their religious world look like? What gods did they worship? What rituals did they perform? How did they perceive the world and themselves? And what perceptions do we have of them today?
The synthesizing work of Zuzana Marie Kostićová provides a complete, comprehensible and up-to-date overview of the global research on the Mayan religion and phenomena directly related to it. It emphasizes its regional and particular character and attempts to rectify some of the foundations and hitherto unaddressed errors that have taken root in Mayan studies.
The text can serve as an introduction to the issue for the general public, as a textbook for college students, and as a comprehensive guidebook for experts from related disciplines.
