Prayer Cards - part 4

In the Christian tradition, holy cards or prayer cards are small, Devotional pictures mass-produced for the use of the faithful. They usually depict a religious scene or a Saint in an image about the size of a playing card. The reverse typically contains a prayer, some of which promise an indulgence for its recitation. The circulation of these cards is an important part of the visual folk culture of Roman Catholics, and in modern times, prayer cards have also become popular among Orthodox Christians and Protestant Christians, although with the latter, biblical themes are emphasised within them.

For more information see part 1, and for more card images see parts 1 - 3 also.

This is part 4 of a 5-part series on Prayer Cards:
