Somehow I don’t think AFP wrote this caption or the others featured in this hilarious slideshow on The Guardian—though it would be awesome if they had.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter

Every Spring I’m reminded of an amazing trip I took to my family’s village in Italy to bear witness to an age old flagellation ceremony.
A yearly Easter ritual dating back to the mid-13th century the Rito dei Vattienti (rite of the beaters) involves devote Catholics that flagellant themselves in the streets and jog the route following the statue of La Madonna procession. Here’s a video from 1960 of the ceremony
Located in the southern Italian town of Nocera Terinese, the Vattienti endure the pain and suffering of religious sacrifice in the name of spiritual cleansing. Their instruments of penance, a cork paddle embedded with 13 pieces of glass used to rhythmical beat their thighs and calves; and Rosa, a flat cork that’s used to clean the wound from the blood in order to prevent its coagulation.
The blood is then washed off in to the streets with wine.
You can see more in a slide show here.
