Description
Summary:The renewed form of the rosary prayer, the Living Rosary Society, established in Lyon (France) in 1826 spread rapidly on the continent. The paper examines the life and work of the society in an agrarian town on the Great Hungarian Plain. The rosary confraternity was principally an association of the peasantry. From the late 19th century the rosary increasingly became a form of women’s devotion and confraternity, the lower middle class and elderly women. But even in the mid-20th century its leaders were still men. While religious life became feminised the secular world retained its patriarchal character in which only men could be leaders. The First World War brought rapid change.
