This little pamphlet reprints a series of correspondence that arose out of a minor allusion in a sermon preached in Holy Rosary Church, Portland, Oregon, U. S. A. by the Rev. A. M. Skelly, O.P.
On Rosary Sunday it is usual in Dominican churches to commemorate the monumental victory won by the Christian armies over the Turks at Lepanto by a solemn procession in honor of the Queen of the Rosary, to whose prayers and influence with God the victory is attributed. The point in question is whether or not the origin of the Rosary is Dominican in nature.
