  • St. Genesius medal
  • Patron saint of actors
  • Unique artisan design
  • Comes with saint card
  • Handmade pewter

Details

This unique St. Genesius medal was hand-carved and cast in lead-free pewter by an American artisan. St. Genesius is the patron of actors and actresses. St. Genesis (d. ca. 300) was a Roman actor. One performance was before the Emperor Diocletian, who despised Christianity. The skit was meant to mock Christianity and baptism. At one point during the skit Genesius, a pagan, had a revelation that the part he was acting and Christianity were real and true. When the men playing “soldiers” in the skit “arrested” Genesius and, jesting, took him before Diocletian, Genesius announced to the emperor that he had become a Christian. Diocletian, enraged, then proclaimed what may well be the harshest  theatrical criticism in history: he had Genesius martyred. This medal comes with a small saint card, making this great to give as a gift.
