Saint Benedict Round Jubilee Sterling Silver Medal Protector Against Evil, Roman Catholic
A lot of hard work and great . artistry must have gone into making the die used to strike this medal. Its small at 13mm, but is has some of the best detail work of all our medals. I don't believe much of labels, so although this is made in a Roman Catholic style, anyone may where it.
Devotional medals are an ancient and venerable tradition in the Church. Many medals, struck with the Chi Rho symbol, have been found in the Roman catacombs and date from the very earliest Christian era. The medal of St. Benedict, one of the most popular devotional medals in the Church, is a two-sided medal, the current and most well known form of which was struck in 1880. The medal was based on earlier images and medals of St. Benedict, dating back at least to 1415, taken from a manuscript that depicted St. Benedict similarly to how he is represented on the medal. The medal can be worn, carried, attached to a rosary, hung, and may even be put into the foundations of homes and other buildings. The purpose of the medal is to be a constant, silent prayer, asking for God's blessing, for Jesus to be our guide, and for strength against evil in times of temptation.
