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 southern Italy. 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.
