Monterosso al Mare_ Liguria_Italy_ The Oratory of the Confraternity of Blacks

Mortis et Orationis

"The Oratory of the Confraternity of Blacks


I don't usually attend religious circles, but this church has something special and disturbing. I leave you any comment.

The Oratory of the Confraternity of the Blacks "Orationis et Mortis" is in the town of Monterosso al Mare. As you can see, is a very special church.

The property is presented in very poor condition. is being restored and the images reproduced on its walls and eaves (peeling), provide a sense of discomfort, although it's a church. I thought the church was desecrated, but it is not. Strange, is not it? The State of the Vatican is full of money, but releases nothing to these places full of charm.


Baroque style, it houses a statue of St. Anthony Abbot, from the monastery dedicated to the saint by the late, present to the year one thousand on the promontory of Punta Mesco.

  1. I know I posted a comment here yesterday! Anyway, the picture on the bottom left - the statue seems to have some kind of curtain on it. You're right the imagery here is a tad disturbing.

  2. Hi Grace, I don't understand your comment yesterday, has not been published. The photos you signals, in my opinion is the place of the hosts. And the veil, I don't understand what it's put that way. Maybe that's what is placed under the cup at the time of taking the consecrated host?.
