PROCESSION OF THE DEAD CHRIST

In Holy Week in Abruzzo, the procession of the dead Christ of Chieti is definitely the most solemn and sumptuous for the 'stage set.
It is the one that best shows the ceremonial formalization of pain and it documents the expressions of a baroque liturgical structure that has structured, according to a precise plan of doctrine, the Catholic liturgy in fixed forms and symbolic.
The procession is organized by Confraternity of the Sacred Mountain of the Dead, but involves the participation of all other brotherhoods, according to a ceremonial established in every detail.
All the brothers wear the 'dress of their association and their carry hooded sign of penance and mourning, while the women, too' them together in associations of religious character, wearing the 'black dress of ceremony.
The procession advancing among the picturesque views of the old town, is made even more spectacular by the presence of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre and the glow of the fire that burns in tripods, lighting the path.
The Schola Cantorum of the Cathedral, accompanied by an orchestra of over 150 arches, continuously executes the Miserere by Saverio Selecchy, musician teatino.
The rhythmic step of the bearers of the trophies of the Passion and the statues, said the "rub", is punctuated by "troccola" wooden instrument that during the offices of Holy Week replaces the sound of bells. Of particular artistic value are the statue of 'Sorrows, wearing a gown of heavy silk embroidered wires d' gold, and the coffin of the dead Christ, covered with a veil studded with precious jewels.
Gabriele d 'Annunzio described the Good Friday procession of Chieti as "a fountain of tears", while Francesco Paolo Michetti l' has represented with light colors, but with traits evanescent, setting a 'no perceptible emotion, but touching.
To create an atmosphere today further contribute the darkness of the night and turned on tripods that illuminate the path.
