"Relación de las cosas de Yucatán" is an updated edition of a catalogue of Mayan words, phrases, and hieroglyphs originally compiled by Spanish bishop Diego de Landa in 1566, with the help of Maya princes. These hieroglyphic symbols were used in modern-day attempts to decipher the language. This work also chronicles aspects of Maya religion and culture.
