The Rosary is perhaps the most popular non-liturgical prayer in the LatinRite. It has appealed to people of all stations in the Church, rich or poor,educated or uneducated, religious or laity. It has been recommended byrecent Popes from Leo XIII to John Paul II, and by saints, such as St. Pe-ter Canisius (1521-1597), St. Louis Marie de Montfort (1673-1716), and St.AlphonsusLiguori(1696-1787). Asidefromitsspiritualbenefits,itsappealno doubt lies with its ease of recitation, its soothing repetitiveness, and itsintimate connection with Scripture and the life of Christ.The standard Rosary with which most people are familiar is known as theDominican Rosary. It is composed of 15 decades broken into three sets of 5 decades each. This is by no means the only Rosary around. There arenumerous other Rosaries, such as the Franciscan Rosary, the Rosary of theSeven Sorrows, and the Brigittine Rosary. Each has its own unique con-struction and emphasis. For example, the Franciscan Rosary is composedof seven decades in honor of the Seven Joys of the Blessed Virgin Mary.Furthermore, Rosaries are not restricted to devotions to the Blessed Vir-gin Mary alone. There are rosaries in honor of the Sacred Heart, the HolyName, the Holy Spirit, the Angels, Saint Joseph, Saint Patrick and manyother saints. The one considered here is the standard Dominican Rosary.The origins of the Dominican Rosary are obscure. There is a popular tra-dition that the Rosary originated with St. Dominic (c 1170-1221). This leg-end, however, is unsupported by historical documentation. Critical schol-arship, including much research carried out by Dominicans themselves,indicates that St. Dominic had little, if anything, to do with the Rosary. St.Dominic certainly had a deep and abiding devotion to the Blessed VirginMary, but there is no mention of his authorship of the Rosary in any of hiswritings, nor is there any mention by any of his contemporaries or his bi-ographers of his involvement. Given the silence of the historical record of his time, it is difficult to see how St. Dominic could have been its author.Instead the origin of the legend of St. Dominic’s involvement appears tohave been due to the writings of Alan de la Roche (Alanus de Rupe) c
