Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
This work is dedicated to the after-life beliefs and mortuary practices of the ancient Aztecs. The ultimate aim is to establish how the Aztecs understood death and to define whether the individual’s life shaped his/her afterlife destiny, to analyse the rites conducted around the deceased and to establish a precise picture of the different destinations where the dead were going. Ethno-historical, archaeological, iconographical and ethnological sources were used and alaysed.
