Publisher's Summary

Discover the remarkable history of the Toltecs.

The Toltecs are one of the most mysterious and little understood of all the ancient cultures of Mesoamerica. This culture was venerated by later civilizations, such as the Aztecs. Even today, “Toltec knowledge” is used as a kind of shorthand for arcane wisdom from an ancient culture. 

However, discussing the actual history of the Toltecs is extremely difficult. Much of what we know of these people comes from writings and oral traditions of the Aztecs, as translated and interpreted by the European invaders. This Aztec history is so mingled with myth and legend that it is very difficult to discern what may be historical facts.

In the 19th and 20th centuries, most historians seemed to accept that the Toltecs were a distinct and warlike culture centered around the Valley of Mexico and who conquered large parts of Mesoamerica. More recently, there has been debate about whether the Toltecs really were a separate culture at all or whether this term should be taken to represent a set of shared ideas and beliefs which permeated many cultures in Mesoamerica around the end of the first millennium.

Even now, much of the information about the Toltecs is vague, contradictory, and subject to debate. This is the mysterious, baffling, and ever-changing story of the Toltecs.

Discover a plethora of chapters, such as: 

  • Origins of the Toltecs
  • The Place of the Reeds
  • Toltec Society and the Cult of Quetzalcoatl
  • The Toltecs and the Maya
  • Decline and Fall
  • And much more!
