In our workshops on the Mexica/Aztecs with young students in schools around England we have for a good number of years referred to the mysterious Ometeotl, a dual male/female creator deity ‘right at the top’. We’ve been aware for some time, however, that the very existence of Ometeotl is in doubt, so recently I uploaded a short introductory article on the subject to the Mexicolore website for teachers and students. It has already received some comments. Here’s the link –
I’ve tried to give a balanced overview of the arguments for and against. We would be grateful to know if we’re ‘out of sync’ here with current thinking, and generally what others think about what seems to be a rather vexed question.
Thanks for any contributions to this debate…
