Mayan Codices


The Mayan league reproduced and published these codices in their entirety. The quality of its strokes seems to indicate that it may have come from the Yucatan region. Of the 4 existing codices it is the one that has been best preserved. It measures about 3.50 metres in length and has 39 pages folded into a screen. In 1740 Alexander Von Humboldt mentioned and published some of its pages. The text makes references to the twin deities of the Pop Wuj among others; in the auguries 260 days are counted.


The Mayan League also published the Grolier Codex that was “found” in Mexico in 1965. A Mexican collector, Dr. Josué Sáenz traveled in a small plane to the Sierra de Chiapas Mountain range and Tortuguero. Smugglers of archaeological pieces showed him the fragments of the codex along with other relics. It’s said that the artifacts were from a nearby cave. Dr. Sáenz eventually exhibited the document at the Grolier Club in New York City in 1971. Of this codex only 10 pages survived. It’s believed that they were produced in the years 1230 AD.


This is the most extensive codex. Its 112 pages deserved an exclusive book by the Mayan League. In the document all the Mayan wisdom is expressed. There are reflections of science, art and philosophy among many other disciplines. It also makes reference to hunting, agriculture, fishing, climate, war and natural disasters. This document next to the other 3 codices and the Pop Wuj manuscripts have allowed the deciphering of the enigmatic Mayan culture and the learning of its rich worldview. Even though the Spanish burned more than 7,000 documents like this one, these codices are testimony of a great empire.


The Mayan League also published the Paris Codex which is clearly prophetical. The document of 24 pages acquired by the Paris Library in 1832 is in very bad condition. It’s divided into 9 sections that contain the prophesies of Katunes. The first section registers 7,200 days or 256 years. In its pages there are predictions that have relation to the climate, the harvest and the general wellbeing of human beings.
