WHICH CHRIST?

Slide 19: 

ANNA CATHERINE EMMERICH, 19TH C: “A] crowd of miscreants— the very scum of the people—surrounded Jesus like a swarm of infuriated wasps, and began to heap every imaginable insult upon him. […] [They] pulled out handfuls of his hair and beard, spat upon him, struck him with their fists, wounded him with sharp-pointed sticks, and even ran needles into his body…After many many insults, they seized the chain which was hanging on his neck….Every countenance looked diabolical and enraged….”

Slide 20: 

PASSION PLAYS The central narrative of Christian theology is the passion, i.e. the trials and crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus. Christians frequently have presented dramatic representations of this narrative known as "passion plays."

Slide 21: 

Passion plays have survived from the Middle Ages. By the 13th cent. they included German verses, and 200 years later the entire play was performed in German. Toward the end of the 15th cent. passion plays had become far more secular in content, having been degraded, in a religious sense, through their contact with carnival plays.

Slide 22: 

Their production was forbidden by ecclesiastical authorities and only a few were revived after the Counter Reformation. Since WWII, the major churches have disavowed the Antisemitism that the play dramatize The chief survival among the passion plays is the one performed at Oberammergau in the Bavarian Alps. Passion plays have been revived in a few cities in W Europe.
