Entry Description: the book "In Corpore Uno" delves into the soul of the members
belonging to the lay religious brotherhoods of a small town in
For the first time, the pictures and the testimonies of those
ancient rites, full of spirituality, are pub- lished, as they have been
unknown so far to those who dont belong to the Confraternities
of Sessa Aurunca. Starting from Lent time, these rites are publicly
shown during the Holy Week Processions until Easter Monday.
through the pictures taken by Antonio Del Sesto, the veil is lifted
for the first time (and with the approval of the members of the
Confraternities in Sessa Aurunca), like it has never been done so
far: the Confraternities hid- den rites (the Suppers, the
performance of the Miserere, the Clothing Rites of Mysteries)
finally come to light.Thats how this book becomes a visual
document of a true, intense, full Faith, miraculously remained
untouched for more than a millennium. Its also a living example
of the original Christian ethos still present in the Ecclesia;
lifeblood capable of allowing every Christian of good will to be an
inseparable part of that One Body (the Corpus Domini) through
which to find the Way, the Truth and the Life.
