"Venus Almanacs in the Maya and Borgia Group Codices"
Gabrielle Vail, PhD, New College of Florida in Sarasota:
This workshop is designed for participants with
an interest in Mesoamerican codices, deities, and mythology,
although prior experience working with the codices is not
required. The workshop will focus on identifying calendrical,
iconographic, and/or hieroglyphic references to Venus in codices
painted by Maya and highland Mexican scribes during the Postclassic
period. Dr. Gabrielle Vail specializes in the study of Maya
hieroglyphic texts, with an emphasis on prehispanic Maya ritual and
religion as documented in screenfold manuscripts painted in the
fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Dr Vail makes the Codices
accessible and easily comprehended in her workshops.
The charge will be $20.00, or $15.00 for
students, for the Workshop and an accompanying Workbook.
