Good Friday at Trapani is the Procession of the Mysteries, which is a ritual as important and suggestive, which kicks off at 14, with output from the Church of San Giuliano di Erice.

Compared to that of nearby Trapani, the procession of the Mysteries of Erice has 6 it off with statutory groups in reduced wood and move more shipped because the rugged and steep streets of Erice do not allow the characteristic annacata.

They also have a shorter shelf life, because the church in return is expected within the hours 20.00. And ┤much less rich in scenic point of view, but also the event every year attracts a large number of tourists who are attracted by the charm that the medieval village of Erice can express.

The origin of this procession is to be found in the second half of 1500, when it represented the scenes of the Passion of Christ with theatrical scenes with live people.

We are at a time when in Trento celebrated the famous Council, and the Church to combat the Protestant Reformation, proved very tough against all those of popular religious expressions, which do not faithfully reproduce the stories described by the gospel.

Initially, the Church decreed that the actors in the flesh of the bones were not allowed to play, but to represent the various scenes of the Cross remained silent and motionless; Later in the second half of 1700 it was determined that living actors were replaced by the wooden statues, because the scenic representation with live people was very expensive and the Erice┤s economy at that time could not afford to support certain expenses.





THE SACRED GROUPS


"The prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane" entrusted to the muleteers and carters.
"The Flagellation" in ancient times to the shoemakers, now looked after by the public sector.
"The Crowning with Thorns" anciently by blacksmiths, now entrusted to the potters.
"Ascent to Calvary" entrusted to the masons.
"Urn" was entrusted to the clergy, young people today are ericini to care.
"Maria SS.Addolorata" is the municipality that takes care of the output (formerly entrusted to the people).
