Product DescriptionThis St. Benedict crucifix comes to us from the Veronese collection of Goldscheider of Vienna where the crucifix is cold cast in bronze (blending bronze powder with epoxy designer resin) and then sparsely and lightly painted to highlight certain areas of the crucifix. The inspirational St. Benedict crucifix measures 11 inches tall and features exquisite, ornate and intricate detailing and symbolism. The medal of St. Benedict which is found above the crucified Christ has a series of letters which stand for the first letter of Latin words used in a prayer against evil. The letters C, S, P and B found on the Benedictine medal are the first letters in the saying "The Cross of our Holy father Benedict". The Benedictine crucifix is often said to epitomkize the fight of good against evil. Legend has it that a group of monks tried to poison Benedict. When he made the sign of the cross of their cup, the cup shattered thus saving Benedict's life. The St. Benedict crucifix will be a stunning addition to any area in which you wish to display it.
