Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Ritual Practice of Time: Philosophy and Sociopolitics of Mesoamerican Calendars contains the table of contents, list of figures and the acknowledgements. Calendars of Mesoamerican civilisations are subjected to what is categorised as "ritual practices of time". The book is a comparative explication of rituals of time of four calendars: the Long Count calendar, the 260-day calendar, the 365-day calendar and the 52-years calendar. Building upon a comparative analytical model, the book contributes new theoretical insights about ritual practices and temporal philosophies.

Keywords: Long Count calendar; Mesoamerican calendars
