Video: European Passion Plays

In honor of Easter week, I’m sharing daily clips from Rick Steves’ European Easter, my one-hour public television special that’s airing now nationwide (check your local listings) and streaming online. For Good Friday, we attend two of Europe’s most poignant passion plays — re-enactments of the Crucifixion, dating back to the Middle Ages — in Škofja Loka, Slovenia, and in Cantiano, Italy. We also join hooded penitents on their Good Friday processions through Gubbio, Italy.
