Description
Continuity and invention characterize Mesoamerican mythic tradition. Some contemporary themes have endured relatively unchanged for thousands of years, others have appeared as new inventions drawing on older traditions. Many myths since the Spanish conquest in 1521 combine essential elements of both indigenous traditions and Christianity in a way that expressess simultaneously their close links with the past and ability to creatively adapt to new situations and demands.--,Publisher.
