Tradition of Christ-soldiers in Hajdúdorog

March 30 - April 1, 2018
Easter is the most important celebration for Christians. In Hajdúdorog, “the most loyal city of the Greek Catholic faith”, a special way exists for commemoration. From Good Friday,the day of the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ until Easter Sunday, men wearing traditional clothes and sword, the so-called Christ-soldiers are serving in the Greek Catholic Cathedral. Their main task is the protection of the Saint Tomb, the symbolic tomb of Jesus.
