Description

Archangel Gabriel appears to the Virgin Mary to announce to her his divine motherhood. Having come to Bethlehem on the occasion of the census imposed by the emperor, Joseph and Mary did not find a place in the hotel. Shepherds then show them to a stable. As an adult, Jesus entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey and presented himself as the Messiah the Jewish people had been waiting for. During his last meal with his apostles, he declares that one of them will betray him and pronounces the blessing. Jesus goes to the Garden of Olives where angels appear to him. Denounced by Judas, he was arrested and then presented to the high priest and Pontius Pilate. Condemned to crucifixion, Jesus carries his cross to the top of Mount Golgotha. He dies and his body is placed in a tomb before his resurrection.

La Bonne Presse, a Catholic publishing company, produced and distributed films with religious topics, and in 1909 they produced a passion film called "La Passion de Notre Seigneur". The special thing about these films was that Bonne Presse produced both the film and the slides with the same title. "La Passion de Notre Seigneur" consisted of 25 slides and 22 film sequences. They were meant to be used together to tell the story, and if the full film was too expensive, some scenes could be replaced by the still slide and a narrator to fill in the story.
