Frank Roper and St Brendan's Sixth form College's Stations of the

Frank Roper and St Brendan’s Sixth form College’s Stations of the Cross The College is extremely fortunate to have a fine example of Frank Roper’s work in its chapel. The Stations of the Cross etchings were an early commission for Frank Roper and form very much part of the College’s Catholic background. The College is being rebuilt (2009) and the stations are being installed in the new chapel, symbolically and literally located at the very heart of the College. At present, the glass stations are exposed to the elements; in the new design they will be protected to ensure that they do not suffer future weathering. Frank Roper was a versatile and prolific sculptor. His long association with Wales, where he was Vice-Principal of Cardiff College of Art from 1947-1973, means that many of his commissions are found in or near to Wales. However, by no means exclusively and some of his important church commissions are to be found in his lettered panel for the tomb of Bede at Durham Cathedral (1970), the lady chapel screen at St David's Cathedral, Pembrokeshire (1973) and his Crucifixion at Peterborough Cathedral (1974). Given its ubiquity in churches, Roper's work remained surprisingly little-known, a fact which perhaps reflects his humility in placing the function of devotion above expression of the artist's personality. What are the Stations? Devotion to the Stations of the Cross is a very long standing Christina tradition; the number and subject matter of the stations varied and was not codified until 1731 when Pope Clement XII decreed the fourteen that are in use today. By the 19th century the Stations of the Cross were ubiquitous in Roman Catholic churches, and, with the Anglo-Catholic Revival within the Anglican church, by the end of that century they were becoming commonplace in churches which are identified with it. So what constitutes the fourteen Stations of the Cross? Listed in order, they are as follows: 1. Jesus is condemned to death by Pilate. 2. Jesus receives the cross. 3. Jesus falls the first time. 4. Jesus meets his mother. 5. The cross is laid on Simon of Cyrene. 6. Veronica wipes the face of Jesus. 7. Jesus falls the second time. 8. Jesus speaks to the women of Jerusalem. 9. Jesus falls the third time. 10. Jesus is stripped of his clothes. 11. Jesus is nailed to the cross. 12. Jesus dies on the cross. 13. Jesus is taken down from the cross. 14. Jesus is laid in the tomb.
