The extraordinary Passion heritage on the island of Hvar is regarded as one of the phenomena of Christianity. The author focused on three Passion processions held in the course of the Holy Week, which have survived uninterruptedly from the Middle Ages and remain part of live tradition. Having described the contexts and course of the Theophoric Evening Procession on Good Friday, the 'Following the Cross' procession and the procession to the 'Lord's Sepulchre', he outlined the historical background, emphasising the significance of the local brotherhoods and confraternities in the transmission of folk religious tradition. The article then considers the concurrence of the contents and form of this tradition with Church liturgy, and concludes about the unquestionable merits of this spiritual and cultural legacy not as a mere historical fact but as a manner of cultivating spiritual life by the congregation itself.
