Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The article proposes the study of a myth of very frequent origin in the colonial Maya narrative of Guatemala, as in the Popol Vuh, relative to a circular migration towards the city of Tulan. This same city, surrounded by water and characterized by seven caves and seven ravines, is present in the mythology of numerous Mesoamerican groups and seems to be of Mexican origin. The study of this myth of Mesoamerican diffusion helps us to understand the models of political integration of this cultural region and the function of the myth as a political paradigm and foreign model of investiture of the rulers.
