Sean Walsh, Veil, note d'autore, 1966, Dublin, Irlanda.
Veronica. The young woman who reputedly made her way through the crowds lining the way to Calvary and wiped the face of Jesus with her veil. Later, she found the facial image of the Nazarene embedded on it.
Traditional? Indeed. Devotional? Doubtless. But without foundation in Scripture.
Was there such a person? Unlikely. Her very name – True Image – Vera from the Latin, Icon from the Greek – would indicate a fiction.
But popular devotion – and mankind’s basic urge to reach out to the Suffering Saviour, offer Him some gesture of solace, however inadequate, along the Via Crucis – ensures that the legend of Veronica lives on to this day.
|Testo in italiano|
Veil è un dramma in due atti sulla Passione di Cristo che ha come protagonista Veronica e come grande assente Gesù.
