The manufacture and use of bells dates back to ancient times. Bells were known to Jews, Egyptians, Romans. Bells were known in Japan and China.

Every bell consists of three main parts: 1) mounting ear, 2) head of the bell (frame), 3) fields, 4) tongue.

In ancient times, bells were small in size and were not cast from metal as they are now, but were riveted from sheet iron. Later bells were riveted from sheet copper and bronze.

When the bells began to be used in Christian worship is not known exactly. During the persecution of Christians, the use of bells was out of the question; the call to worship was made through special persons of the lower clergy (the Laosinakt people-gatherers).

The first use of bells in Christian worship, church tradition refers to St. Peacock, Bishop of Nolan (353-431). In a dream vision, he saw an angel with bells that made wondrous sounds. Wildflowers bluebells prompted St. Peacock in the form of bells, which were used during worship.

The historical monuments of the West mention bells for the first time only in the 7th century, at churches in Rome and Orleans. By the 8th century in the West, thanks to Charlemagne, church bells were already widespread. Bells were made from an alloy of copper and tin, later iron and, in rare cases, silver were added to these metals.

The middle of the 9th century can be defined as the time of the widespread use of bells in the Christian West.
