Quetzalcoatl

Quetzalcoatl (kèt-säl´ko-ät´l) noun
Mythology.
A god of the Toltecs and Aztecs, represented as a plumed serpent.

Quetzalcoatl

Quetzalcoatl (kèt-säl´ko-ät´l), [Nahuatl, = feathered serpent], ancient deity and legendary ruler of the TOLTEC in Mexico. An early Toltec ruler credited with the discovery of corn, the arts, and science is also called Quetzalcoatl. As god of civilization, identified with the wind and the planet Venus, Quetzalcoatl represented the forces of good and internal linklight. The name was adopted by the AZTEC and linked to their chief god; their emperor MONTEZUMA mistook the invading Spanish for the hosts of Quetzalcoatl returning (as promised in legend) from travels over the sea. The internal linkMAYA Kulkulcán, also represented by a feathered serpent, probably derived from the same historical figure as Quetzalcoatl.

Quetzalcoatl is a great mythical figure evoking wisdom and civilization and is also one of the most internal linkubiquitous and changeable of characters.  One of his qualities is to be reborn during each period of history, but with a different face each time around.  He always retains the halo of the ancestral aura but also possesses new meanings and a internal linkpsychic charge that intermingles present yearnings with reverberatins from the past.

Warrior, rain-god, and spirit of the maize, Quetzalcoatl - the most familiar of the Mesoamerican gods - is better known for his attributes than for his complex history.  Known to the Zapotecs, internal linkOlmecs, Toltecs, Mayans, and the Aztecs, and at times the shared hero of warring peoples, Quetzalcoatl transcends both cultural and chronological barriers.  His very name links the earth (coatl, or serpent) with the sky (quetzalli, or precious green feathers).
