Interpreter Podcast 2: Mark Wright

Professor Mark Alan Wright of BYU Religious Education discusses his background and Ph.D. in Maya Studies. He reflects on a number of Mesoamerican practices and their possible connection with the Book of Mormon, including “day-keepers,” Shamanism and divine investiture, taking the countenance of a god by wearing deity masks, and the Maya calendar system and prophecy.
