Summary
"Art historians and archaeologists from the US and Mexico come together to examine the nature of sacred space in Mesoamerica. Contributors explore the process of defining sacred space; how modern Western definitions differ from ancient Mesoamerica; how sacred spaces were conceived and used physically and symbolically; and what theoretical approaches are useful for art historians and archaeologists"-- Provided by publisher.
