This event is part of the Modern Europe Workshop series.
The growing popularity of Holy Week processions and similar festivals all over Southern Europe suggests that comparative work is yet to be done on outdoor manifestations of popular religion and their role in the areas of “peripheral modernity” (Beatriz Sarlo’s coinage). Facilitating the interaction between locals and visitors and confirming the sense of belonging, these festivals now appear to be as important for branding localities as they are for “opening them for business” on domestic and international markets.
