Oberammergau and its Passion Play- Joseph Schroeder
This set includes the book, Oberammergau and its Passion Play written by Msgr. Joseph Schroeder. It was published (in English) in
1910 by Heinrich Korff in Munich, Germany. It is accompanied by a portfolio of photos of the actor as Christ Crucified.
The book has over 100 pages and is 7" x 5". Both the book and the portfolio are in very good condition with no marks or tears.
The first written reference to the Passion Play of Oberammergau we find is in 1633, when if is referred to in connection with a vow made to obtain relief from the Black Death, when the people of Oberammergau vowed to produce the play every ten years. Books documenting the various incarnations of the play were produced since that date. Long after his death Msgr.Schroeder's book is still updated and published whenver the Passion Play is produced.
