Gorgeous antique gold plated, antique replica, of a rare St Benedict of Nursia medal by the French artist Becker. The artist signature is not very visible on this replica. I am blessed to have this original in my collection and be able to share with you.

The medal is available by itself (on the jump ring) or dangling on an antique gold plated paperclip chain necklace with a lobster clasp closure. The adjustable chain option is adjustable length from 17 inches to 19 inches. The fixed length option is 16 inches. If you would prefer a different fixed length, please let me know.

The front of the medal has "Crux SP Benedicti". SP stands for Sancti Patris. This means the "Cross of Holy Father Benedict".

On the backside, the vertical beam of the Cross has five letters C.S.S.M.L., meaning Crux Sacra Sit Mihi Lux (May the Holy Cross be for me a light).

On the backside, the horizontal beam of the Cross has five letters N.D.S.M.D., meaning Non Draco Sit Mihi Dux (Let not the dragon be my guide).

On the backside, the four large letters at the angles of the Cross C S P B stand for Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti (The Cross of the Holy Father Benedict).

On the backside, encircling the Cross in a circle around the right margin are the letters V.R.S.N.S.M.V. meaning Vade retro Satana; nunquam suade mihi vana (Begone Satan! Suggest not to me thy vain things).

On the backside, encircling the Cross in a circle around the left margin are the letters S.M.Q.L.I.V.B., meaning Sunt mala quae libas; ipse venena bibas (The drink you offer is evil; drink that poison yourself).

The Saint Benedict medal is a powerful spiritual weapon of protection against evil and temptation. The back also has a Latin exorcism prayer.

A meaningful, unique piece that measures approximately 1 inch diameter. This replica is solid pewter plated with 12K gold, and then antiqued. This is a very high quality plating, but plated items should be removed when showering or swimming. The pewter is lead and cadmium free. No polishing or maintenance needed! These 12K gold plated pieces are a different casting process than my solid gold bronze pieces which require polishing. This pendant never needs polishing, but is plated. Made in the U.S.A.

A Holy Moments® Artisan piece.

The artisan jewelry and rosaries are unique to Holy Moments.  Many pieces are only a few of a kind due to limited availability of certain gemstones or hand cast items.  New, exciting products are always being added to both the Etsy shop and company website.
