Résumé

This thesis focuses on the practices and beliefs concerning temporal rituals recorded in extant Post Classic Mesoamerican codices (950-1521 A.D.) in pictographic and hieroglyphic form. Year burning iconography in Post Classic manuscripts is indicative of aspects of Mesoamerican beliefs and customs with greater zones of influence than other, more distinctive ritual prescriptions and regional cultural knowledge, also present in the illuminations. Examining pages in these manuscripts which describe comparable periods of transition common throughout Mesoamerica provides valuable insight into how beliefs and practices described in each manuscript group conform to established regional trends, and how and where they depart from the calendrical conventions and the temporal ritual organization of contemporaneous civilizations. Iconography related to celebrations designed to renew time are investigated within the context of Post classic Mesoamerican art and culture.
