TENNER - A chaplet with ten beads, called a Tenner or in German, "Gebetskette Zehner" (prayer chain with 10 beads), was very popular in the 15th and 16th century. They usually had a saint's metal, cross, pomander or tassel hanging from the bottom. Often an eleventh larger bead was added as well.
CREDO CROSS - The Apostle's Creed can be found in use as early as 6th century. By the end of the 12th century Eudes, Bishop of Paris issued a decree in 1196 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.
