Lieber Tulio,
das Komboloi stammt ursprünglich aus Indien oder China (Mala); von dort gelangte es in die arabische Welt, wo es im Islam zum Gebetskettchen (Tasbih) wurde, bei denen jede der 99 Perlen für einen der Namen Allahs steht. Der heilige Dominikus führte es in die christliche Welt ein, woraus sich später der Rosenkranz entwickelte; Papst Gregor XIII. führte 1573 das Fest des Rosenkranzes am ersten Sonntag im Oktober ein.

Bernstein-KettchenDie Griechen haben das Komboloi vermutlich aus dem arabischen Raum von den Türken übernommen. Im Gegensatz zum islamischen Gebetskettchen hat es bei den Griechen jedoch keinerlei religiöse Bedeutung mehr.

Dear Tulio
The Komboloi originally originates from India or China (Mala); from there it arrived into the Arab world, where it became in the Islam the prayer small chain (Tasbih), with which each of the 99 beads for one of the names Allahs is located. The holy Dominikus inserted it into the Christian world, from which the Rosenkranz developed later; Pope Gregor XIII. 1573 introduced the celebration of the Rosenkranzes on first Sunday in October. Bernstein-KettchenDie Greeks probably took over the Komboloi from the Arab area of the Turks. Contrary to the Islamic prayer small chains it has no religious meaning with the Greeks however more.
