Longest Day at Stonehenge, Wiltshire Featured Image

Longest Day at Stonehenge, Wiltshire

People gathering at Stonehenge, Wiltshire on the longest day of the year, on or near 21 June 1912. This photograph shows a daybreak pilgrimage by members of The Universal Bond of the Sons of Men, or Church of the Universal Bond. This was a religious group founded in Britain in the early 20th century by George W MacGregor Reid, promoting socialist revolution, anti-imperialism and sun worship. By 1912 Reid was becoming attracted to Druidism, especially as Stonehenge was at the time regarded as a solar temple. His church began holding rituals there, and this continued until the site was given to the state in 1918. When the growing Stonehenge free festival caused the monument to be closed at midsummer in 1985, the Church faded into obscurity but has maintained a presence at the reopened solstice festivities since 2000

The Chapel of Mercy, Kevelaer, Germany Featured Image

The Chapel of Mercy, Kevelaer, Germany

Kevelaer, a municipality in the district of Kleve, in North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany. The most-visited Catholic pilgrimage location within north-western Europe, with more than 800, 000 pilgrims visiting every year to honour the Virgin Mary. The shrine of Mary, "Comforter of the Afflicted, " had its origins in the Thirty Years War (1618- 1648), which had devastated the region. In 1642, Heinrich Busman, a merchant, obtained an engraving of Mary pictured in front of the city of Luxembourg, and installed it in a shrine at the crossing of the Cologne-Amsterdam trade route. In 1654, the Chapel of Mercy (pictured on this card), a hexagonal structure, was erected to house the picture (inset top right); the image has remained in that shrine. Date: circa 1910s
