A Station for Eastertide

Before the Stations of the Cross settled in their present form they were close to becoming Stations of the Gospels, for they began with incidents surrounding the Nativity and Included events after the Resurrection. The idea was to reproduce as many Holy Places for the stay-at-home pilgrim as could be.

The story was sometimes told In artificial reconstructions in the open air, often on a hillside like the Stations at Lourdes, sometimes all clustered together in a huge wooden reredos, as travellers

in Germany may notice. A modern approximation are the glazed terracotta "stations" of the Rosary Way at Aylesford.

In St. Nicholas's Church, LUneburg, are carved wooden stations in the processional path around choir and sanctuary, which begin with our Lord's childhood and end with "Stations for Eastertide", including that of the Resurrection which is pictured above. The church is now in Lutheran hands.
