The Secret of the Incas: Myth, Astronomy, and the War Against Time

by

The Secret of the Incas: Myth, Astronomy, and the War Against Time Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Step by step, Sullivan pieces together the hidden esoteric tradition of the Andes to uncover the tragic secret of the Incas, a tribe who believed that, if events in the heavens could influence those on earth, perhaps the reverse could be true. Anyone who reads this book will never look at the ruins of the Incas, or at the night sky, the same way again. Illustrations.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

Analyzes Inca mythology in light of the historical events that transformed their world at the time of the arrival of Spanish conquistadors.

Synopsis:

At its peak, the Inca empire was the largest on Earth. Yet in the year 1532, it was conquered by fewer than 200 Spanish adventurers. How could this happen? Approaching the answer clue by clue, scholar William Sullivan decodes the myths of the Incas to reveal an astoundingly precise record of astronomical events. The Incas accepted their fate as written in the stars. Illus.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [369]-402) and index.
