May I buy a rosary purely for artistic display?
I am assuming you are not a Catholic. As a collector of religious artifacts, you may find yourself drawn to the beauty and craftsmanship of a rosary, even if you do not belong to the religion that it represents. It is important to recognize that there is nothing wrong with appreciating the artistry of a religious emblem, so long as it is treated with respect and dignity. In fact, many reasonable and open-minded individuals of faith may be flattered by your admiration of their religious symbol, and see it as a sign of cultural appreciation. Therefore, feel free to display your rosary with pride in your home, and celebrate the beauty of religious art in all its forms.
