English abstract
Introduction to the theme of the volume "Mesoamerican Rituality and Cosmovision". The volume presents articles dealing with different aspects of Maya and Mesoamerican cosmovision and ritual from prehispanic, historical and colonial questions to contemporary ritual attempting to reveal the processes of persistence and adaptation. Most of the articles were presented as papers in the symposium "Mesoamerican Rituality and Cosmovision: Persistence and Adaptation of the Ritual Framework in Different Cultural Areas through Time" as part of the 53d Interntational Congress of Americanists (ICA)"The Popels of the Americas: Changes and Continuities. The Construction of One´s Own in a Globalized World" which took place at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City from July 19th to 24th, 2009.
