The Paternoster

Visit Website
Description During the medieval period religion played a much different role in society than it does today. Religion was part of everyday life; the church heavily influenced social customs, science, food and even colour. Everyone during this time would be religious and would appear to be so by wearing a paternoster, known today as the rosary (rosarius means a garland or bouquet of roses). The rosary was used as a prayer counter to aid the reciting of prayers, and was heavily used during the medieval period. Saying the rosary was said to be an antidote to heresy and sin. Article includes photos of re-created paternosters, with the prayers to be said.
