Solari, Maya Ideologies of the Sacred: The Transfiguration of Space in Colonial Yucatán

Amara Solari of Penn State speaks about the opposing views of sacred space in post-conquest Yucatán.

Using the Maya city of Itzmal as a case study, this book explores how indigenous conceptions of space and landscape both aided and subverted the Franciscan evangelical effort in Colonial Yucatan.
