“Carlos Pallán Gayol nos ofrece en este volumen un resumen de los angeles historia de los mayas. En él, descubrimos que no existió un imperio maya como tal, sino que más bien, había distintas poblaciones mayas que andaban a l. a. gresca un día sí y otro también."(

“Les invito a que se adentren a través de este libro, Breve Historia de los Mayas, dentro de l. a. selva y junto a l. a. entretenida lectura de los angeles obra de Carlos Pallán Gayol observen a los angeles deslumbrante y pura luz de the USA imperative todo el devenir de los angeles cultura Maya, su sabiduría y misteriosa mitología, el esplendor de los reyes y reinas, guerreros y sacerdotes que vivieron en majestuosas ciudades dentro de feraces selvas tropicales, l. a. mística que desprenden sus ancestrales jeroglíficos."(

La epopeya de l. a. mayor civilización de Mesoamérica, que persiste con sus señas de identidad en los angeles actualidad. Un pueblo que levantó inmensas pirámides sin conocer l. a. rueda.

La civilización maya fue una de las más importantes de Mesoamérica, sus impresionantes pirámides y construcciones siguen maravillando al mundo, todavía más si se tiene en cuenta que fueron construidas sin usar animales de carga o l. a. rueda o que sus majestuosas ciudades se construyeron ganándole metro a metro a l. a. selva. los angeles cultura maya además, frente a otras como los angeles azteca o l. a. egipcia, ha conservado sus señas de identidad, ha mantenido sus ritos mostrando un falso sincretismo que ocultaba, en un secreto impenetrable que sólo ahora que se han descifrado l. a. mayor parte de sus jeroglíficos o se ha comenzado a rescatar su legado, parece salir a los angeles luz.

Determina Carlos Pallán que los mayas nunca constituyeron un imperio, sino una aglomeración de pueblos en continua batalla, como los angeles Grecia de las polis y desde allí traza un arco cronológico hasta los angeles actualidad en los angeles que aún existen mayas puros en Guatemala y en ciertas zonas de México. Divide l. a. historia de los mayas en tres periodos fundamentales: el Periodo Preclásico en el que presenciaremos l. a. creación de ciudades como Petén y el nacimiento de una agricultura en pugna continua con l. a. selva; en el Periodo Clásico nacerán ciudades tan majestuosas como Palenque; y, por último el Periodo Posclásico o Época de los Grandes Reyes que concluye con el ocaso de l. a. grandeza maya por los angeles colonización española, es l. a. época de esplendor del gran K’uk’ulkaan rey de Cichén Itzá o del Rey Pakal de Palenque que ordenaron l. a. construcción de las impresionantes pirámides. Los últimos capítulos están dedicados a l. a. mitología y los angeles religión de los mayas, que conciben un mundo atemporal previo a los angeles creación del tiempo, y a los logros astronómicos, resaltando las exactas predicciones meteorológicas, o los matemáticos, con una unidad de cálculo con una precisión que en Europa no se daría hasta el S.XII.

Razones para comprar los angeles obra:

• los angeles obra desvela como l. a. asimilación occidental de los mayas no es tal, ya que han mostrado un falso sincretismo, conservando en secreto su cultura.
• los angeles perspectiva del autor es directa, tomando los datos de las fuentes, sin mediación de los establecidos clichés occidentales sobre los mayas.
• los angeles obra muestra datos relevantes basados en las investigaciones más recientes, en l. a. comprensión casi completa que hay actualmente de los jeroglíficos mayas.
• Deja al lector un espacio crítico, enseñándole los diversos logros de esta cultura, por ello, es el lector el que debe separar realidad y mito sobre los angeles civilización más importante de Mesoamérica.

Una investigación amena y absolutamente clarificadora de lo que los mayas supusieron para l. a. historia de América y para nuestra propia historia, y una inmejorable oportunidad de desentrañar esta cultura compleja, pionera y viva.

Attention has already been drawn to the striking fact that even Diocletian legislated with no small vigour against the Manichees, and when we find Valentinian I and Ms son Gratian, although tolerant of other bodies, passing laws of equal severity in this regard (372), we feel that such interdiction is especially significant.

Theodosius I, by a statute of 381, declared Manichees to be without civil rights, and incapable of inheriting in the following year he condemned them to death, and in 889 he sternly directed the rigorous enforcement to the letter of these penalties.
