:Hi [[User:Aaron|Aaron]] - In the related article on the [[Prayer rope]], I briefly noted that there are parallels in many other relgions as well. As in many other cases, the "technology" used is the same, or very similar, but the goal and content of the prayer is theologically adapted to each tradition. It seems that the Rosary was introduced to the West by the Crusders returning from the East (particularly Muslim countries). The issue of meditative prayer is interesting and should be taken up elsewhere, I think. I expect that there would be different opinions about this in the Orthodox world. <br>

This article asserts that the Rosary was Orthodox in origin. What is the evidence, beyond the fact that prayer ropes have a venerable history in the Church? The claim that praying the rosary with it's repetition of the "Hail Mary..." and its meditations, has an Orthodox origin should be substantiated.
