St BENEDICT
Also known as BENEDICT-THE-GREAT, BENEDICT-OF-NURSIA

Patron Saint of Europe, Schoolboys and Male Students. Also People who've been Poisoned

Brother of St SCHOLASTICA and Founder of the Benedictines.

He started out as a hermit who worked out a splendid method of quelling lust: rolling around naked in thorns and brambles.

He was then able to concentrate on producing a liqueur like Benedictine which must have made things a lot more bearable.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest St Benedict graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, St Benedict movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about St Benedict statues, sculptures or carved figurines of St Benedict. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
