The Mast

The Mast
O Mastro com a bandeira de São Benedito ao lado da igreja do Rosário - Vitória - Espírito Santo - Brasil

[pt] A história da Irmandade de Nossa Senhora do Rosário dos Pretos acabou se ligando à história da Irmandade de São Benedito do Convento de São Francisco, quando o guardião desse convento proibiu a procissão de São Benedito.
A área, compreendida entre o Convento de São Francisco e a igreja do Rosário, possuia ruas estreitas e tortuosas. Seus morros apresentavam o verde da Mata Atlântica de encosta, que abastecia a população com as águas de suas fontes.

[en] In front of the church, built from 1765 to 1767 by the Brotherhood of Our Lady of the Rosary of the Blacks, remains exposed several months every year the mast with the flag of Saint Benedict, remembering a miracle occured near the Brazilian coast. A few slaves had survived a tempest that sank the ship that transported them, grasping the mast until being brought to the shore.
The little house (VSB) belongs to the Rosary Church that may appear on this blog in the future days.

[fr] Sur le parvis qui fait face à l’église construite entre 1765 et 1767 par la Confrérie de Notre Dame du Rosaire des Noirs est planté, chaque année plusieurs mois durant, le mât qui soutient l’effigie de Saint Benoît, en mémoire et reconnaissance d’un miracle survenu au large du Brésil. D’un navire négrier qui avait fait naufrage, une poignée d’esclaves réussit à s’accrocher au mât qui flottait.
La petite maison (VSB), en cours de restauration, est une dépendance de l’église du Rosaire.
