People, whether ancient or modern, seek out ordering principles to the world, an understanding of the forces of nature and celestial phenomena. Foremost among these are the structure of the universe and the perceived meaning of both life and the afterlife, as governed by hidden hand of the divine. This talk explores the multi-dimensional world of the ancient Maya cosmos and how this preeminent New World civilization sought to set humanity within a far greater scheme of space and time.

Admission: $10 per lecture; Members, $5.
