TENNERS - Tenners or Gebetskette Zehners (prayer chain with 10 beads) became popular in the 16th century. As the name implies, they were chaplets consisting of 10 beads. Sometimes another bead was added which was usually larger than the 10 beads and sometimes had bead caps and/or spacers separating it from the other beads. In addition to these beads there was a tassel, saint's metal, credo cross, crucifix or some kind of pendant. Often a number of these items were used in combination at the end of the prayer beads.
CREDO CROSS - The Apostle's Creed can be found in use as early as 6th century. By the end of the 12th century a decree was issued commanding the priests to urge the people to recite frequently the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed and the Salutations to the Virgin. The Creed was usually said on a cross form that was incorporated into the prayer beads and became known as the credo cross.
