St Thomas Aquinas Medal, Patron of Academics
Silver pewter medal of Saint Thomas Aquinas with the words "Pray For Us" on the reverse side.
St Thomas Aquinas was born around 1225 in Italy and was among the most influential thinkers of medieval scholars. Today he is the Patron Saint of universities, all students, thinkers and philosophers.
As a child Thomas was described as “a witty child who has been given a good heart”; as a university student he was known as ‘the dumb ox” because of his quiet ways and giant size! An authority of the Roman Catholic Church and a prolific writer, Aquinas died at the Cistercian monastery of Fossanova, Italy, on March 7, 1274.
Size: 2.5cm tall including loop, nickle & lead free pewter with lightly oxidised finish.
Comes with split ring through the loop on top for attaching. If you are looking for a chain to wear this medal as a pendant, I have some good quality stainless steel neck chains here that are a good colour match.
