The Catholic Encyclopedia says:

"The official recognition of the Ave Maria in its complete form, though foreshadowed in the words of the Catechism of the Council of Trent, as quoted at the beginning of this article, was finally given in the Roman Breviary of 1568."

http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07110b.htm

Stripping the prayer officially back to its first part "to go back to antiquity (or the Bible)" sounds unwise to me.  It's a part of the "change, change, and more change" thinking of modernists.

For private use, of course it is not sinful to use only part of the prayer. But it doesn't sound very traditionalist to me.  What Hail Mary was used by the 3 shepherd children at Fatima?

I'm not advocating Bugnini's ideas here, but it seems that during the time St Dominic supposedly received the Rosary from Our Lady, only the first part was used.

As far as "traditionalist", I'm just trying to be orthodox. 8)

See The Rosary: Its History and Meaning by Willam & Kaiser (1952).

Yeah from that same Catholic Encyclopedia article it also says "Finally, the petition "Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen." is stated by the official "Catechism of the Council of Trent" to have been framed by the Church itself."

So the 3 shepherd children at Fatima must have used the same Hail Mary that we use now, but possibly in Portuguese or Latin.
Like John Vennari (RIP) said "Why not just do it?  What would it hurt?"

"We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete." Benedict XVI May 13, 2010

"Tell people that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Tell them also to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for peace, since God has entrusted it to Her." Saint Jacinta Marto

The real nature of hope is “despair, overcome.”
