Faith, Teotitlan, MexicoAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Mexico, Oaxaca, Teotitlan del Valle, April 21-22, 2011. True faith suffuses every aspect of Teotitlan del Valle's painstaking recreation of the last hours of Jesus, from Thursday's afternoon's Last Supper through to a night vigil at a jail cell after his arrest. Village elders play the parts of the twelve apostles, and the town's devout fill the church for mass and communion, for the ritual washing of the disciple's feet, and for multiple gatherings which mark the hours. Good Friday dawns with music, scripture, and a solemn procession of Christ, the Virgin Mary and the town's own radiant“Virgen Dolorosa” through the streets.
