Tenebrae Hearse Candelabra

Bring the beautiful ancient tradition of a Tenebrae Service for Holy Week into your home with this home-crafted wooden Tenebrae Hearse. Learn more about Tenebrae in this post.

Hearses ordered by 4/7 will arrive in time for Holy Thursday. 

The hearse is designed to resemble antique Tenebrae hearses in cathedrals across Europe. It measures approximately 18″ x 9″ x 3″. It’s made of laser cut and engraved plywood, with brass fittings. Also included is a set of fifteen US handmade all-natural 100% beeswax candles and a printable PDF of my abridged at-home version of the service with instructions, prayers, and scripture readings.

A design note ✝️💀 . . . There is a skull nestled in the scrollwork. The long artistic Tradition of the Church puts a skull at the foot of Jesus’ cross. The skull symbolizes Adam, and Jesus’ triumph over sin and death as brought into the world by Adam and Eve. Some early Church Fathers, including Origen, took it even more literally, and believed that the scripture verse “Golgotha, which means the place of the skull” (Mark 15:22), meant that Adam’s bones were buried in the place of Jesus’ crucifixion. (Read more here.) Skulls are also a part of the Catholic tradition of Memento Mori, or “remember your death.” (Read more here.)
