Via Crucis Bevagna: the procession of the daed Christ
The procession of the dead Christ in Bevagna (PG) is one of the most touching moments of the celebration on the occasion of Easter.
Protagonists of the procession are the three Cruciferi, Jesus and the two thieves, who dragged the crosses through the streets of Bevagna followed by the Madonna and the dead Christ’s statue.
The three Cruciferi and the members of the brotherhood with torches depart from the church of the Seminary. For last the statue is raised and carried in procession through the streets.
The atmosphere of meditation and prayer really impressive. The extraordinary silence is broken only by the sound of the band and the chains at the Cruciferi’s ankles.
The procession, at the end of the stages of the Via Crucis, returns to the church of the Seminary and the statue is placed again on the altar.
