About the Author

Frank Diaz is an anthropological investigator focusing on shamanic studies, Nahuatl language, and Mesoamerican traditions. His other books include Quetzalcoatl's Avatars and Toltec Wisdom: The Original Teachings of Quetzalcoatl. Born in Cuba, he currently lives in Mexico and teaches classes on Toltec traditions at Cuernavaca University.


"With more than 85 illustrations from an original codex, The Gospel of the Toltecs truly meets its objective of teaching the secrets of the Toltecs, since in the indigenous cultures it was common to teach through the pictography. We all know that a simple picture can say more than 1000 words." * Hunbatz Men, author of Secrets of Mayan Science/Religion *
"Frank Diaz writes with great clarity and detail about the heroic drama of Quetzalcoatl in a way that shows him to be both grandly universal and an exemplar for all human beings If people wonder what was this wisdom of the Toltecs, then they should start by reading this brilliantly informed and inspiring text." * Dr. Jose Arguelles, author of Time and the Technosphere, The Mayan Factor, and Earth Ascen *
"This work is a milestone. Wisdom from surviving codices of an ancient mystical tradition becomes available, understandable, and cogent to a spiritually seeking public." * Merilyn Tunneshende, author of Don Juan and the Art of Sexual Energy and Don Juan and the Power of M *
"With The Gospel of the Toltecs, Frank Diaz has provided cornerstone research that will guide the footsteps of those who seek to unravel one of the most compelling philosophies known today." * Ken Eagle Feather, author of A Toltec Path *
"This is a very different book that should be read by any serious shamanic student." * Michael Peter Langevin, Magical Blend, Fall 2002 *
