Spy Wednesday

Artist: Giotto di Bondone

This is something I didn't know:
In Western Christianity, the Wednesday before Easter is sometimes known as "Spy Wednesday", indicating that it is the day that Judas Iscariot first conspired with the Sanhedrin to betray Jesus for thirty silver coins.
I found it on The Deacon's Bench blog over at Beliefnet.


  1. Ha! Now I don't feel so bad for never having heard of this term for Wednesday in Holy Week. Interesting, isn't it?
