Commemorates the Last supper. Pope Urban IV ordered the observance of such a feast in 1264, and in the following century it became universal in the Western Church. In Germany: only in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Hesse, Nordrhein Westfalen, Saarland, Saxony (only several townships), Thüringen (preponderating catholic population).
In Spain: only Sevilla & Granada.
