The Emmerich Stations of the Cross set is named after Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, the German nun and mystic who wrote the highly influential meditation The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ. This set of stations was painted in the German style by an unknown artist in the late 19th century. Recognizable for its illuminated golden halos around the heads of Christ and His followers, as well as for the rich contrast and shadowing throughout the set, the Emmerich Stations of the Cross convey the beauty and sacrifice of Jesus’ Passion with a blend of modern and traditional styles.
Available in three sizes, each image plate is assembled by hand at our shop in Steubenville, Ohio. The plates are comprised of a semi-gloss vinyl print mounted on ACM, a material commonly used in the small business world for outdoor signage because of its durability and low cost. By using ACM in devotional shrines and prayer walks, we consider this common form of outdoor signage to be baptized with a renewed purpose and character.
ACM plates are UV-resistant, guaranteed for 3-5 years of perfect image fidelity with minimal fading. For devotees who live above the 40th parallel, or who are able to face their stations to the North or South, many more years of perfect image fidelity are possible! Nonetheless, all things in this world will fade with time, and even the ideal conditions of minimal sunlight will eventually result in fading, even if this is decades down the road.
The Shrine holding the 4x6 image is 9" wide by 11" tall. The 6x9 is 10" wide by 15" tall, and the 8x12 image is 13.5" wide by 19.5" tall. The Shrines have a 2.5" to 3.5" overhang to help protect the image. We also have just the aluminum image plates available on this website for sale if you wish to build your own style shrine! This set of 14 Stations provides a great source of meditation upon the Passion of Christ and are the perfect addition to the Lenten season.

The workmanship was very good and they look very nice. Time will tell how they hold up in the elements, but for now things are good. The packaging was impressive to ensure their safe arrival. We did experience a problem with the actual delivery date, but that was corrected and rectified.
