?While the religious rituals of Holy Thursday have remained largely the same for the past 1,000 years, according to a recent study, something associated with the famous Last Supper has changed significantly over the years.

Findings from a study published in this month’s International Journal of Obesity showed the following increases (measured in proportion to the sizes of the heads of Jesus and his disciples): main course size by 69%, plate size by 66% and loaves of bread by 23%.

The research focused on portion sizes of 52 popular renditions of the famous Biblical scene created between the years 1000 and 2000.
