Old Rite Prayer Rope (Lestovka)


Made of handcrafted leather, the Lestovka or "Ladder" is a type of prayer rope used in Russia before the arrival of the Greek knotted prayer rope in the 18th century. It is still used today by pious Old Ritualist Orthodox Christians. Like other Prayer Ropes, any repeated prayer can be said, however the most often used is the Jesus Prayer.
