5Title:  The fate of earthly things: Aztec gods and god-bodies   
 Creator:  Bassett, Molly H., 1980- 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 253-267) and index. "Following their first contact in 1519, accounts of Aztecs identifying Spaniards as gods proliferated. But what exactly did the Aztecs mean by a "god" (teotl), and how could human beings become gods or take on godlike properties? This sophisticated, interdisciplinary study analyzes three concepts that are foundational to Aztec religion--teotl (god), teixiptla (localized embodiment of a god), and tlaquimilolli (sacred bundles containing precious objects)--to shed new light on the Aztec understanding of how spiritual beings take on form and agency in the material world. In The Fate of Earthly Things, Molly Bassett draws on ethnographic fieldwork, linguistic analyses, visual culture, and ritual studies to explore what ritual practices such as human sacrifice and the manufacture of deity embodiments (including humans who became gods), material effigies, and sacred bundles meant to the Aztecs. She analyzes the Aztec belief that wearing the flayed skin of a sacrificial victim during a sacred rite could transform a priest into an embodiment of a god or goddess, as well as how figurines and sacred bundles could become localized embodiments of gods. Without arguing for unbroken continuity between the Aztecs and modern speakers of Nahuatl, Bassett also describes contemporary rituals in which indigenous Mexicans who preserve costumbres (traditions) incorporate totiotzin (gods) made from paper into their daily lives. This research allows us to understand a religious imagination that found life in death and believed that deity embodiments became animate through the ritual binding of blood, skin, and bone"--

6Title:  Tezcatlipoca: trickster and supreme deity   
 Creator:  Baquedano, Elizabeth 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 197-230) and index. "Tezcatlipoca: Trickster and Supreme Deity 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 Tezcatlipoca's nature, multiple roles, and metaphorical attributes illustrate the extent to which his influence penetrated Aztec belief and social action across all levels of late Postclassic 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"--

14Title:  The cost of courage in Aztec society: essays on Mesoamerican society and culture   
 Creator:  Clendinnen, Inga | Roger S. Baskes Collection (Newberry Library) 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. "A collection of pathbreaking essays on Aztec and Maya culture in the sixteenth century"--Provided by publisher. "Tenochitlan, the Aztec city, was the creation of war. The courage and stamina of its young fighting men was indisputable. In the title work of this pathbreaking collection of essays, Inga Clendinnen discusses why warfare was so central to Aztec society and the ways in which the Aztecs understood their relationship to the forces governing the world and the heavens. Aztec rhetoric and Aztec ritual were unified in the endeavor to sustain a social order sufficiently in harmony with the natural order. Subsequent essays examine the survival of Yucatec Maya culture under Spanish conquest, the role of "religion" in sixteenth-century Mexico, and Hernando Cortes and the conquest of Mexico."--Provided by publisher.

16Title:  Sacred consumption: food and ritual in Aztec art and culture   
 Creator:  Morán, ElizabethPh.D | Latin American and Caribbean Arts and Culture Publication Initiative 
 Notes:  "This book is a part of the Latin American and Caribbean arts and culture publication initiative funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon foundation."--Title page verso. Includes bibliographical references (pages 123-131) and index. "Aztec painted manuscripts and sculptural works, as well as indigenous and Spanish sixteenth-century texts, were filled with images of foodstuffs and food processing and consumption. Both gods and humans were depicted feasting, and food and eating clearly played a pervasive, integral role in Aztec rituals. Basic foods were transformed into sacred elements within particular rituals, while food in turn gave meaning to the ritual performance. This pioneering book offers the first integrated study of food and ritual in Aztec art. Elizabeth Morán asserts that while feasting and consumption are often seen as a secondary aspect of ritual performance, a close examination of images of food rites in Aztec ceremonies demonstrates that the presence--or, in some cases, the absence--of food in the rituals gave them significance. She traces the ritual use of food from the beginning of Aztec mythic history through contact with Europeans, demonstrating how food and ritual activity, the everyday and the sacred, blended in ceremonies that ranged from observances of births, marriages, and deaths to sacrificial offerings of human hearts and blood to feed the gods and maintain the cosmic order. Morán also briefly considers continuities in the use of pre-Hispanic foods in the daily life and ritual practices of contemporary Mexico. Bringing together two domains that have previously been studied in isolation, Sacred Consumption promises to be a foundational work in Mesoamerican studies." -- Publisher's description
