The Penitent

The Penitent

The white hooded figures seen in Good Friday processions are often called penitents or sometimes nazarenos. These individuals participate in processions as a form of penance or devotion, often as a part of Catholic religious traditions, particularly in countries like Spain and some Latin American countries. The hoods are meant to anonymize the participants, emphasizing humility and the idea that all are equal in the eyes of God. The exact name and significance of these figures may vary depending on the specific cultural and religious context of the procession.
