Self-flagellation

Self-flagellants

Guy Veloso. Penitents (self-flagellation group). Bahia, 2012. Analogic (slide).

“Penitents”, “Power” or also “Brothers of Soul” are secular groups of secrecy that through certain times of the year, go hit the night praying for the “suffering spirits”, usually covering their faces with rags or hoods, in some dramatic cases, practicing self-flagellation.
