Dürer’s Large Passion was issued as a folio–format devotional book. It consisted of a title page depicting the Mocking of Christ and eleven large woodcuts illustrating the narrative of Christ’s Passion as conveyed in Latin verses by Benedictus Chelidonius (c. 1456–1521), a Benedictine monk from Nuremberg. Although some of the woodcuts were begun as early as 1497, Dürer’s final woodcuts and the title page were not completed for publication until 1511.
