Women and children wore a pendant of the Holy Ghost, presented as a dove, for protection. The dove has a deep religious meaning. After the Flood it brought an olive branch to Noah’s ark, which is replaced here by a round pearl. The dove is the symbol of the reconciliation of God and man, and of peace among men. It also represents the Holy Spirit in the Holy Trinity.
