Descriptif

In this presentation I consider Old Testament narratives in the first títulos written in K’iche’ in the mid-sixteenth century and in the earliest K’iche’ homiletic production. Responding to the need to legitimize their rule and hereditary privileges, on the one hand, and to cast themselves as Christian subjects of the Spanish king, on the other, K’iche’ noble scribes presented their ancestors as members of one of the ancient tribes of Israel. They reinterpreted Old Testament narratives as variations of migration stories, the emblematic postclassic Maya official lineage history. I examine the articulation of Maya and Christian temporalities in these texts, the fraught dialogue between Maya lords and Dominicans, and the solutions Maya nobles developed to make Christian time scales and cycles compatible with Maya conceptions of time and elite political agendas.
