Description: Original, antique printed text printed on thin, laid paper with a fine Renaissance, pagan(?) border. From an historically/theologically influential book by Father Alberto da Castellano (a Domenican friar): Rosario della gloriosa vergine Maria published in Venice in 1521 -- the rare first edition, (probably the first pulling Bohatta, 383; Sander, 6571; Essling, 2123). Reproduced many times through the 17th Century. Father Castellano simplified the Rosary for those who could not remember its many sections (an edition of 1541 says it was not "solamenti a gli literati, ma etiam alli illiterati e ignoranti e idioti"). To every "Hail Mary", he put one picture and one contemplation of a mystery from the lives of Jesus and Mary. In 1569, this form was codified by the Dominican Pope Pius V, called the "first Pope of the Rosary." For the "Year of the Rosary", the Certosini monastery put every woodcut from their 1524 edition on their website. Castellano divided the mysteries into 15 contemplations: of the Joyful Mysteries (Annunciation, Visit to Elizabeth, Birth, Presentation, Public Life); of the Painful Mysteries (Agony, Flagellation, Coronation with Thorns, Climb to Calvary, Death); and of the Glorious Mysteries (Resurrection, Ascension, Pentecost, Assumption, Glory).
