Item № A100.104
Italy, c. 1950
Tiny but mighty, 1 cm two-sided pendant of St. Benedict (standing) on one side and the Benedictine Cross on reverse. Paired with 925 sterling silver rhodium coated 1mm rope chain in choice of 16 or 18 inch lengths.
On the arms of the cross of Saint Benedict are the initial letters of a rhythmic Latin prayer: Crux sacra sit mihi lux. Nunquam draco sit mihi dux (May the holy cross be my light - May the dragon never be my guide). In the angles of the cross, the letters C S P B stand for Crux Sancti Patris Benedicti (The cross of our holy father Benedict). Saint Benedict of Nursia was a founder of Christian monastic communities and a rule giver for monks living in community. His purpose may be gleaned from his Rule, namely that "Christ may bring us all together to life eternal." He is patron saint of many things, especially warding off negative spirits.
