A ritual involving the burning of a human figure and beating it with an pig bladder is reported to have survived in Liverpool until the mid 20th century.The tradition was to mark Good Friday and its practice in an area of the city known as Holy Land was unique in the UK.Holy Land is an area of Dingle made up of streets named after prophets, including Moses Street, Isaac Street, Jacob Street and David Street.The names of the streets are a relic to a puritan past that saw settlers attracted to the area new farmland in the 17th century.A small community of dissenting Puritans settled in the area around Otterspool in the early 1600s and called the area Holy LandPrayer meetings were held in a retired glen called Dingle and the settlers went on to build the Ancient Chapel of Toxteth in the 1610s.At the end of the 19th Century, there still existed similarly religiously named places including a farm named Jericho, a stream named Jordan and landmarks called David Throne and Adam Battery.In the first half of the 20th century, the streets of Dingle and Toxteth would be filled with the cries of “Judas” and the crackle of burning bonfires every Good Friday.Burning an effigy of Judas at Easter was common in Greece, Spain and Mexico but only in Liverpool and confined to this area is the tradition recorded to have taken place in the UK.View historical photos from your area with Memory Lane by entering your postcode below:In an article for The BBC in 2006, David Glyn Hughes recalled the burning ritual during his childhood in the 1930’s.He said: “I was born in 1928 and my childhood up to the blitz was spent living in a two up two down in one of the streets leading down to Grafton Street from Cockburn Street in Toxteth.”I remember that we used to get up early on Good Friday morning and Judas up against the wall of some building.”The ritual is said to have involved children aged between eight and 12, who would collect fire wood and build an effigy of a human figure to represent Judas, much like we still do with Guy Fawkes. “The Judas would then be burnt on a local waste ground. Sometimes a pig’s bladder would also form part of the ritual.”The bladder would be purchased from a local butcher, inflated and then tied with string before being attached to a stick.”The bladder would be used to beat the Judas and often other children too.”It said the police and fire brigade would often attempt to stop the burnings and chased the children away from the bonfires and through the streets.Despite this, most remember the ritual fondly, and something that would generally be over by midday after the bonfires had been lit.Read MoreThe Liverpool Echo has a free app and here how to download itWhy this particular tradition took off in the Dingle nobody knows for sure.
