Astounding Artistic Calloboration: The Passion Of The Christ

Fr. William Fulco, S.J. and Mel Gibson collaborated on a masterpiece.

A thousand years from now the movie entitled, The Passion of the Christ will be watched and replayed over and over again. In the deluxe edition of the movie which came out a few years ago Fr. William J. Fulco, S.J. a professor of Archeology and Ancient Languages at Loyola Marymount University is a key figure in some the back story of the movie. What I did not realize until I watched the short documentary, that Fr. Fulco was so instrumental in giving the artistic life to the three day narrative of Jesus' Passion, the movie might never have been made or been made in the unique way in which it was presented with out Fathers help. I do not want to give to much away, because I urge you to watch it for yourself. You will be astounded at the process of breathing life into the native tongue of Jesus, Aramaic and the choices of words and the dramatic use of Latin.
