Description

Solid 14 carat yellow gold medallion pendant with St Genesius depicted on the front.  St Genesius was a leader of a theatrical troupe during the reign of Roman emperor Diocletian.  During a performance meant to ridicule Christian rites, he pretended to receive the Sacrament of Baptism.  During the performance he fell ill on stage and two actors dressed as a priest and exorcist were called on stage, to actually baptise him and take away all the weight on his chest.  It was claimed he had a vision of angels directing him.  The emperor was enraged and demanded he renounce his new found faith but he refused was imprisoned, tortured and eventually beheaded.  His remains became relics and he became the patron saint of actors, the veneration of St Genesius continues today.  There is a shrine to St Genesius in Saint Malachy a Roman Catholic church in the New York City Borough of of Manhattan.  The shrine serves as a spiritual landmark for the cities acting community and sufferers of epilepsy.
