Passion cribs

The Passion cribs, also known as the "earnest cribs" show Jesus' passion in the form of cribs during Lent. In the run-up to Easter these cribs depict scenes from Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, the passion of Christ, crucifixion, and resurrection.

In contrast to the classical Christmas cribs, the more austere passion cribs call for an intense involvement of the onlooker and are mostly focused on the key scene without the abundance of auxiliary scenes as with the Christmas cribs.
