Those that know me, know I love old religious iconography. I use saints & religious artifacts in my spellwork, & have no issues or qualms doing so. I also have a bad habit of collecting any & all rosaries that I come across. I am offering you a piece of my collection, one random rosary out of my horde. <3
As Christianity swept into pagan lands, & it replaced the old religions, sometimes remnants of old culture & religion remained, rather than discarding the old gods entirely, some cultures re-branded the native gods as Christian saints. Mary & Jesus are nothing more than a copy of popular dying-and-rising fertility gods in various places.
