The results of analyses described in Chapter 10 are here brought to bear on how Maya Christianity has been interpreted and on how conversion among the Maya may have been facilitated. Local vs. global perspectives are considered, as are imagery and interpretation, the Maya cosmos and Christian thought, landscape, and the critical links between images and sacred space. Commonalities between Mayas and Spaniards are explored, such as the custom of leaving offerings and the veneration of ancestors, real or fictive (saints).
