Anglican prayer beads
| Anglican prayer beads ： ウィキペディア英語版|
Anglican prayer beads, also known as the Anglican rosary or Anglican chaplet, are a loop of strung beads used chiefly by Anglicans in the Anglican Communion, as well as by communicants in the Anglican Continuum, and by members of the Anglican Ordinariates within the Roman Catholic Church. Anglican prayer beads were developed in the latter part of the 20th century within the Episcopal Diocese of Texas and this Anglican devotion has spread to other Christian denominations, including Lutherans, Methodists, the Reformed, thus giving rise to the term Christian prayer beads.〔''Mary: The Imagination of Her Heart'' by Penelope Duckworth 2004 ISBN 1-56101-260-2 page 118〕〔''The Rosary for Episcopalians/Anglicans'' by Thomas Schultz 2003 ISBN 1-58790-055-6〕
Anglican prayer bead sets consist of thirty-three beads divided into groups. There are four groups consisting of seven beads with additional separate and larger beads separating the groups. The number thirty-three signifies the number of years that Christ lived on the Earth, while the number seven signifies wholeness or completion in the faith, the days of creation, and the seasons of the Church year.〔(【引用サイトリンク】title =Anglican Prayer Beads )〕
