This is a handmade, and copyrighted, medal of St. Hildegard. Each medal comes with a history stating the following:

"St. Hildegard (1098-1179), an abbess and foundress of a Benedictine community, was also 'an author and theologian; prophet and preacher; musician and composer; poet and artist; doctor and pharmacist.' Throughout her life she had a series of visions that she described in her illustrated book Scivias. The visions show human beings, the universe, and all creatures as 'sparks' of God’s love. Her poetry and music are further expressions of this vision. She also wrote two treatises on medicine and 'stands as one of the great figures in the history of women in medicine.' This medal, which shows her receiving illumination, was handmade at In the Company of Saints."

I design, carve, and cast the medals myself. The medals are made of lead-free pewter and have designs on both sides. The pendant comes with a jump ring (see photo 1), so it can easily be attached to any chain you have. This listing is for the pendant alone, but it does come with a split ring so it can also be used on a key chain (see photo of packaging).
