Description: In Škofja Loka, Slovenia, a folk play procession takes place in the town’s medieval centre during Lent and Easter. The Škofja Loka Passion Play, based on the ancient works of a Capuchin monk, demonstrates 20 scenes of the stations of the cross and others from the Old Testament and New Testament involving 900 local performers and 400 additional volunteers. Performed every six years, it is considered a contributor to community identity and cohesion, transmitted by families, schools and local craftspeople.
