Abstract

The "Jude" is a straw doll that in many villages in Navarre was shown about in the streets on the back of a donkey. The doll is then insulted during this promenade in the streets. The puppet was then subjected to trial and convicted of all the malfeasances that had happened in the village over the previous year. Its ritual fate consisted in being condemned to die in the stake. It represented evil symbolised as the traitorous apostle who betrayed Jesus Christ. This tradition used to take place during Easter. This study deals with the description and comparison of this usage in the western area of Tierra Estella, since we consider that it is in this region of Navarre where this rite was most widely extended.
