Maya Codex Workshop
Venus Almanacs in the Maya and Borgia Group Codices
This workshop is designed for participants with an interest in Mesoamerican codices, deities, and mythology. 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, New College of Florida in Sarasota, leads the workshop. Dr. 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 14th and 15th centuries. The workshop is presented by the Pre-Columbian Society at the Penn Museum.
The charge will be $20.00, or $15.00 for students, for the workshop and an accompanying workbook.
