When did the Rosary begin? I know they used something else in the church to pray before there were rosaries.


Hello! I believe that they were originally used to pray the 150 psalms. The rosary supposedly was given to Saint Dominic by Mary.


Thanks. I heard the prayed the poter noster with something before the rosary.
