German term or phrase: am Hungertuch nagen
arm sein; Ursprung: um das Jahr 1000 kam in zahlreichen Ländern Europas der Brauch auf, während der Fastenzeit den Altarraum durch einen Vorhang vom übrigen Kirchenraum abzutrennen. Zu Beginn sollte dieses Fasten-Velum, die Gläubigen darauf hinweisen, dass die Gottheit Christi sich während seines Leidens verhüllte.
