Historically used by flagellants from the Middle Ages, the capirote was also present during death sentences handed down by the Inquisition, where the condemned person was forced to wear this hat to be publicly humiliated. This humiliation echoes that of Jesus Christ during his ascent from Golgotha.
This hood was also used by flagellants, who, as their name indicates, imposed torture on themselves to atone for their sin; flogging was one of the main self-inflicted punishments. All this, anonymously thanks to the concealed face.
From the 17th century, the brotherhoods of Seville began to use it during Holy Week processions, in commemoration of the Passion of Christ for the remission of the sins of men, and his subsequent resurrection.
