St. Guy". A caricature of the procession of epileptics which made an annual pilgrimage to the church of Molenbeeck-Saint Jacques in Luxembourg. The event was in honour of St. Willibrord who was credited with delivering a whole town from an outbreak of dancing mania. The pilgrims apparently moved to music composed especially for the occasion. Lithograph from C. Aubry's Album comique de pathologie pittoresque.
