Pampanga, Philippines - Re-enactment of Christ's crucifixion
Each Easter the town of Pampanga stages a re-enactment of Christ's crucifixion. Approximately 10 people take part each year and are flogged as they make their way through the streets before being nailed to a cross. A mixture of Roman Catholic and more primitive beliefs, the event is a bloody and rather gruesome spectacle that none-the-less always attracts huge crowds of locals and curious tourists. Although not encouraged by the church itself, this and other crucifixion events take place each Easter in various towns and cities around this predominantly Roman Catholic country.
Self Flagellation on Good Friday.
