Tezcatlipoca - Trickster and Supreme Deity (Hardcover): Elizabeth Baquedano Tezcatlipoca - Trickster and Supreme Deity (Hardcover)

This book brings archaeological evidence into the body of scholarship on the lord of the smoking mirror, one of the most important Aztec deities. While iconographic and textual resources from sixteenth-century chroniclers and codices have contributed greatly to the understanding of Aztec religious beliefs and practices, contributors to this volume demonstrate the diverse ways material evidence expands on these traditional sources. The interlocking complexities of Tezcatlipocas nature, multiple roles, and metaphorical attributes illustrate the extent to which his influence penetrated Aztec belief and social action across all levels of late Post-classic central Mexican culture. Tezcatlipoca examines the results of archaeological investigations -- objects like obsidian mirrors, gold, bells, public stone monuments, and even a mosaic skull -- and reveals new insights into the supreme deity of the Aztec pantheon and his role in Aztec culture. Contributors: Elizabeth Baquedano, Caroline Cartwright, Cecelia F. Klein, Colin McEwan, Susan Milbrath, Guilhem Oliver, Juan Jose Batalla Rosado, Nicholas Saunders, Michael E. Smith, Rebecca Stacey, Emily Umberger
