Legends, customs, liturgies, and music, revolving about the celebration of Easter and the pre-Easter season -- Lent, Holy Week and Good Friday, appears in many forms in the countries of the world and among the different Christian churches. In this book many of them are described in a fashion which will be of particular interest to Roman Catholics, Anglicans and others to whom liturgy, symbolism, and custom is of especial importance. Valuable to those who wish to enrich the observation of the Great Festival Days of the Church for themselves or for their parishioners.
