Holy Week

Holy Week, in the Christian church year, week preceding Easter, observed in most churches as a time of solemn devotion to the passion of Christ. From the 4th century the events of the week of the crucifixion have been liturgically reenacted, now especially on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday.
