Pater Noster

Pater Noster, the Lord's Prayer, so-called in the Latin Church from the first two words of the Vulgate version, meaning "Our Father." Also one of the large beads in a rosary at the telling of which the said prayer is repeated, and hence the rosary (q.v.) itself. In fishing, a line set with hooks and shot at regular intervals.
