-The Passion Play. Part 6
The history of this work of art is singularly tragic. As the statue of St. John, which forms part of the group, was being drawn up the old mountain-road, in places perilously steep, it toppled over fr...

-The Passion Play. Part 8
The dress of the young mountaineers who had performed this task was peculiar. They wore no stockings, their feet being thrust, uncovered, into heavy shoes. But over the lower part of the leg was drawn...
-The Passion Play. Part 9
One change in my surroundings made me realize forcibly that I myself was ten years older. In 1880, in that very street, I had seen Maier's children run to meet their father, and had watched him catch ...
-The Passion Play. Part 10
