Description of the Toltec religion.

.

Toltec mythology is known mostly for the adaptations that later cultures made of it, also given its influence on neighboring aboriginal peoples. Their religion and worldview contemplated a series of central gods such as Quetzalcóatl, Tláloc, Centéotl, Itzlacoliuhque and Tezcatlipoca, to whom they worshiped and offered human sacrifices.

.

His is the origin of the Quetzalcóatl myth, inherited by other cultures and distorted into a multiplicity of versions. In almost all of them, however, the fall of the god is observed for having yielded to his carnal passions.
