Xiuhtecuhtli (Lord of Fire, Lord of the Year, The Ancient God) is regarded as the oldest deity of the Olman mythos. As god of fire he is the lightning bolt and the volcano, but he is also the hearth fire that warms the home and cooks the food. As god of time he is the patron of the sacred rituals that keep the world running smoothly, but he is also the patron of the everyday rituals that make a household run smoothly.
Xiuhtecuhtli asks only that people perform the necessary rites to keep the world running smoothly. His Speaker emphasizes both his guise as god of the hearth – using the power given to them to aid the community, as well as his guise as a fire god to harness the power of lightning and volcanoes.
