Czechs honored st. Vaclav

On Friday, in Czech and Moravian cities, it was possible to see the skull of st. Vaclav. It is a traditional ceremony, that is concluded by a pilgrimage to Stara Boleslav, where st. Vaclav was murdered. For the remains of st. Vaclav and the divine service came about 1000 people.

What interests the author is, in what are those celebrations different from the so called Cult of the Dead. In this cult, tombs are build, and people are celebrated after they die, more than when they are alive. The presentation of a skull to the whole nation is a little symbolic, isn’t it?

28th September became the national holiday in 2000.
