John, do the Dominicans wear a 15 decade Rosary as part of their habit?

I'm looking into applying at the Angelicum. They require 2 years of philosophy before entering the program for the STB, but I haven't been able to find out if they offer those classes there at the Angelicum, or if you need to take them elsewhere first. I couldn't find any info on the website, so I was hoping you'd be able to at least point me in the right direction. Thanks!

Why, yes of course! And some brothers wear a 20 decade but as one American brother said, "Wild offshoots!"

The rosary wasn't obligatory until the 1500's, though.

The Dominican Order is the special "protector" of the Rosary.
