PILGRIMAGE SOUVENIR ROSARY

CELEBRATING
JUBILEE YEAR of 1700
A wonderful Pilgrimage rosary from Rome, celebrating the Jubilee year of 1700. The medallions help us to understand the tradition of the Scala Santa and the 4 doors of the 4 major Basilicas in Rome.

The Basilicas of St Peter, St John Lateran, Mary Major and St Paul's Outside the Walls are highly visited by Rome's Pilgrims during a Jubilee year. It is traditional to walk through one of each of the basilica doors during that year to bring special blessings.

The Scala Santa, Holy Stairs are believed to be the stairs scaled at the home of Pontious Pilate by Jesus before he was crucified.
