Description

A gate metal pads that is engraved with gold on a black background, the seal of Vichiers: SIGILLUM Militum XRISTI.
Although the sentence is written using Latin characters. The first two letters of Christ's name are the Greek XP (Chi Rho) rather than the Latin CHR. The XP has its roots in early Christianity, but came into popular use after the Emperor Constantine had a vision and, according to legend, he converted to Christianity in the early fourth century. The time of Constantine, became one of the most significant symbols of Christianity, surpassed only by the cross. Its association with a military force made it so the most suitable to represent the Templars so that often used the Chi Rho also on the shield.
Another useful collectible item must for any fan of the history of this famous order.
