Hiking Highlight (Segment)
As here, the Way of the Cross usually leads up or along the mountain or hill (sometimes also referred to as "Calverian Hill" in memory of Golgotha, where Jesus Christ was crucified) with the - nowadays mostly 14 - stations. Early medieval forerunners of the Ways of the Cross had only 7 stations and were sometimes also referred to as the "walk to the seven footfalls".
In some places, after the fourteenth station, the burial of Jesus, there is another station: the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This additional Station of the Cross broadens the view from Good Friday towards the Easter perspective of hope: overcoming death and suffering.
