      Something that came up in a conversation this week which I wondered if anyone here had thoughts on...


      Are there many illustrations which shows Paternoster beads AND Books in close proximity? I've found three fairly fast:

      Magdalene Reading
      Ghirlandaio's St Jerome in his Study
      And this one here, http://www.pinterest.com/pin/58969076343495830/,, which I'm going to have to track down again :)

      The thought is to do with paternosters and literacy - i.e. some seem to be suggesting that paternosters were for the illiterate, but that doesn't tally with me, so I was looking for possible contradictory evidence... :) 

      Emy
