    "In the body of literature written early in the colonial period by the Maya there is a collection of prophecies called "U Tzol Than Ah Kinoob" (the interpretation (of visions) of the priests). This collection contains the prophecy by the priest Chilam Balam about the coming of foreigners bringing with them a new religion as well as prophecies by other priests. This is the portion of colonial Yucatecan Mayan literature which has received the most attention by outsiders to the Mayan culture since these prophecies became known by the Spanish friars. A portion of these prophecies was published by Lizana in 1633. Since the prophecy by Chilam Balam is the most important of these prophecies, it is from this prophet that the whole body of native Yucatecan Mayan literature dealing with Mayan religion has received its name, namely 'The Books of Chilam Balam' "--"The Prophecy of Chilam Balam", from the FAMSI (Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies) web site, checked September 2019.
