This book constitutes a very interesting synthesis of the geographical, historical and archaeological knowledge of Mexico, as well as of its different cultures. It allows us to sense the existence, through the ages, of an initiatory chain, which links various ancient civilizations. The sacred doctrines of Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent, the main deity of the peoples of Mesoamerica, are presented in the Toltec, Aztec, Mayan civilizations, to name only the main ones.
Although these civilizations have not yet revealed all their mysteries, both mystically and culturally, Susana Caron, in an approach that is both scientific and intuitive, lifts the veil on some of them. Showing us the temples and pyramids of Monte Alban, Teotihuacan, Palenque, Uxmal, Chichen-Itza, Tula, the author establishes astonishing analogies between these places and those that can be visited in Egypt, the analogy being perceptible in pictorial and architectural level, but also in initiation ceremonies and sacred doctrines.
