The history of the Rosary can be traced back to the third century when monks in Egypt, known as the Desert Fathers, would pray all 150 Psalms using bags with little rocks or ropes to keep track. This practice continued for centuries until Saint Dominic received a vision from Mary in 1214, which detailed the prayers and format of the Rosary as we know it today. The evolution of the Rosary has progressed similarly to the way books of the Bible were put together, leading to what we have today.

Where Is The Rosary In The Bible?
“Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”
The specific words of the Hail Mary prayer are not found in any single verse of Scripture, but are rather a combination of passages from the Gospel of Luke. The first part is based on Luke 1:28, where Gabriel greets Mary with the words, “Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.” The second part is based on Elizabeth’s words to Mary in Luke 1:42, where she says, “Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.”
