This set of medieval prayer beads is created with thirty-three (33) large square wood beads, 10x10mm, strung on a deep red silk cord. It is finished with a two bright red wool tassels. In linear form, there is a bit of slack between the beads so they can be slid along the cord. Measures 21.5" in length.

This particular style - square beads of this size, with red tassels on each end - I remember seeing a while ago in a medieval painting. Still trying to re-locate which painting it was...

Every Paternoster comes with a little card explaining the history and including some of the prayers and how the medieval rosary was prayed.
