About this title

Synopsis:

Living and working among the Tz’utujil Maya people of Santiago Atitlán in highland Guatemala for some fifteen years, Vincent Stanzione has observed, photographed, and participated in their ritual and ceremonial life, which he describes with unique authority in this account of the continuities in Mayan culture from pre-Columbian times to the present.

“This book represents both a confirmation and an innovation in the scholarship and field work about the religious imagination and rites of passage of Maya peoples. I know of no book that is as able to a) link the pre-Hispanic, colonial and contemporary religious practices of these peoples into a coherent narrative, b) combine anthropological/religious studies theory with linguistics and ongoing field work as creatively and c) illuminate the debate between models of ‘syncretism’ and ‘transculturation’ about a contemporary ritual cycle as Stanzione’s beautifully illustrated work.”—David Carrasco, Harvard University

From the Publisher:

The first North American edition of Stanzione’s longterm observations of traditional Maya ceremonies in Guatemala.
