Jesuit Bead on a Jasper and Bone Paternoster - Tenner


Large and small beads alternated so that the Lord's Prayer was said on the large bead and Hail Mary on the smaller ones. We used brecciated jasper for the large 16mm beads and the small ones are made of bone. It is strung of black silk beading thread with a brown tassel at the bottom and twisted brown cord at the top for hanging from a belt or pouch.

Our string of prayer beads has a large bead (approx. 1" height and width) of unknown material that has the images of Jesus and Mother Mary carved on the sides. We have no idea how old it is or why it was called a Jesuit bead when sold to us by a bead vendor at a historical event.

The alternating large and small bead arrangement was inspired by an original in a museum in Huy, Belgium which dates to c. 1250-1300 AD. It is made of bone. Both are perfect examples where the "Our Father" and "Hail Mary" were recited in an alternating sequence.
