EL CONCEPTO DE LO SAGRADO EN EL MUNDO ANTIGUO ANDINO: ESPACIOS Y ELEMENTOS PAN-REGIONALES

Traditionally, “the sacred” has been defined from the western perspective as “something related to the divinity or devoted to religious purposes” as well as, “the opposite of profane” according to Eliade. It is often assumed that “the sacred” is experienced primarily in rituals and in spatial dimensions, but not in its social and economic dimensions. In the set of studies collected in this volume, the sacred is analyzed using ontological categories which serve as alternatives to dual concepts, or through the identification of new ontological relationships to understand the religious phenomenon in the pre-Hispanic and post-Hispanic world all along the Northern and Central Andes.
