No Comments on Ancient rituals and traditional feasts in Tuscany – Sant’Antonio Abate

On January 17th, (or the nearest Sunday)  throughout Tuscany , and particularly in its villages and rural areas, the life of Sant’Antonio Abate (Anthony the Abbot or Anthony the Great) will be heralded with ancient rituals and traditional feasts.

Sant’Antonio Abate (not to be confused with the more famous St. Anthony of Padua) is notable for being an ascetic who attempted to live in the la Egyptian desert, completely cut off from civilization, just a quarter of a century after the birth of Christ. A hermit who renounced his worldly possessions, Sant’Antonio is said to have overcome a series of supernatural temptations during his pilgrimage in the desert.
