Summary:
The Mayan Empire was supported by sophisticated mathematical and astronomical knowledge. These ideas were integrated with their religious sacrificial practices, as in their life or death ball games. The theme of blood sacrifice to the gods was supposedly symbolized by the shedding of the king's blood, but the ritual piercing of his body was a sham, carried out by temple priests in secret, enforcing his power through subterfuge. Perhaps due to exposure, the rituals died out, and so did the empire. Aligns with McDougal Littell's World History ©2009: American Civilizations; and World History: Patterns of Interaction ©2009: People & Empires in the Americas.
