THE PATERNOSTER GUILD - Reviving The Original Rosary

Seattle, Washington

Announcement    The modern day rosary is the direct descendent of the medieval rosary, the Paternoster, whose origins reach back at least 1000 years. Paternoster prayer beads developed during the early Middle Ages, eventually used by just about everyone in medieval Europe as an aid to prayer. They also frequently doubled as fashion accessories, being pinned to a cloak or draped over a belt. These prayer beads were originally named after the Our Father prayer - which in Latin is “Pater Noster” - which was most often prayed on them in the earlier centuries.

Here at the Paternoster Guild you will find an assortment of these fine hand-crafted Medieval prayer beads, each lovingly designed and created by Janelle and Megan using natural and historically authentic materials. A perfect gift for medieval and renaissance re-enactors, history nerds, and of course for all those who pray!
