Comparison of the Stations of the Cross in Sauniere's Mary Magdalene church to those Stations of the Cross in other Churches said by some to be the same.
List of Churches used in this comparison are:
The Mary Magdalene church at Rennes-le-Chateau.
Station of the Cross 6 Comparison
Veronica Wipes Jesus' face.
Rennes-le-Chateau 6 Rocamadour 6
In the Rennes-le-Chateau Station Sauniere has changed:
Posture and arm position of the man on the left, shortened the cross, altered the arm of the soldier holding the shield, but this was probably more to do with fitting into Sauniere's choice of frame. The cloth held by Mary has been extended to reach Jesus's face.
Like five, Couiza Station six was blocked by the Christmas trees preventing me from taking a photograph. I will add it as soon as I have one.
Station of the Cross 7 Comparison
Jesus falls for a second time.
The Couiza Station shown here is Station 3 but as it matches the Rennes-le-Chateau Station 7 it will be used in this comparison.
These two stations have no similarities except for the number of figures 7.
Unlike the Couiza Station the Rocamadour station 7 is very similar to the Rennes-le-Chateau Station 7.
Sauniere's changes: An extra figure. No horse or rider. All figures are slightly different.
