A convulsion paternoster is a good example of how faith and superstition can merge. It was thought that use of this rosary would provide protection against all manner of seizures. Sometimes amulets were added between the beads to provide extra protection against other disorders. This type of rosary was particularly popular in German-speaking regions where it is known as a Fraiskette.
