Mesoamerican cosmology: recent finds
Jesús Galindo Trejo


The archaeological and ethnological research carried out in the last decades in Mesoamerica has allowed to know better diverse concepts of the cosmology in regions little studied till now. Though one can to distinguish a common substratum from the Mesoamerican living together throughout many centuries, the cultural local peculiarities frequently seem to dominate the message expressed in the Prehispanic art. In this work we present so much the cosmological ideas that were valid in Mesoamerica's Central Altiplane and original those of other Mesoamerican regions. The previous thing demonstrates clearly the richness of alternatives that followed the cosmological Mesoamerican thought.
