Summary note:
"The purpose of this book is to show the cultural and religious aspects that are hidden in the Church of Santa Maria Tonantzintla but are part of its mythological and historical background. This exhibition takes as guide some elements that if can be appreciated is in this magnificent Church that Adous Huxley consider as the most singular temple in the Christian World. The Baroque deployed inside allowed the fortunate conjunction of two worldviews: the Judeo-Christian and the Mesoamerican." (Our translation)--Pager 11.
