Our Lady of Regla (Nuestra Señora de la Regla) Medal - Patroness of Sailors and the Town of ReglaSKU: BC77
Our Lady of Regla Medal (Spanish: Nuestra Señora de la Regla) that depicts Mary on the front and flowers on the back. This detailed die-cast medal is made in the region of Italy that produces the finest quality medals in the world.
The devotion to Our Lady of the Regla was started by St. Augustine, the bishop of Hippo In Northern Africa. He had a revelation in which he was visited by an angel that told him to carve a statue with the same complexion as the Africans. When Thagaste (in present day Algeria, now called Souk Ahras) was sacked in the 5th century CE, it is said that Saint Cyprian (and other Augustine monks) saved the statue of the Virgin and took her through a storm across the Strait of Gibraltar. This successful passing across the stormy sea is considered the first miracle the Virgen de Regla ever performed. That she sailed is the reasoning behind her being known as the Virgen Marinera, or patron saint of sailors. The Virgin was taken to Chipiona in Cadiz, where a shrine was built in her honor.
