Cult Pervades Culture

May 10, 2010

I was thinking of all of you today when I was watching a favorite film of mine, “Les Folies des Grandeurs”. This scene came up and I thought of how much you all enjoyed being shocked by the Nazarenos. The plot is a comedy of errors that takes place in 17th century Spain, with a hilarious script written in fast-paced French with quick blurbs and jumbles of almost Macaronic Spanish and German.

Many MANY thanks to Peggy S. for the photos from her attendance.

Anatomical Reliquaries

May 1, 2010

This may have been one of the reasons old Martin Luther blew a gasket in his day. Any Protestants out there (peace be to you) reading this should know: we don’t worship our saints. Although the meaning of the word “worship” is a sort of portmanteau of “worth-ship”, to declare the worth of something or someone–in that sense we worship anyone when we attribute a value to them. But I digress, precious anatomical reliquaries are a beautiful Catholic tradition dating back at least 12oo years.

Can you guess which body part each of these reliquaries contains?:
