Gifts for Teacher

St. Catherine of Alexandria, Patron of Teachers
The story of Catherine of Alexandria (ca 4th century) has a long and rich history. The essentials are that at 18 she had a vision so powerful that she converted to Christianity. During the persecution of Maximus, Catherine, still a young woman, offered to debate the leading pagan philosophers. The story holds that Catherine’s ability to teach and explain was so compelling that she converted many of the opposing philosophers. Enraged, Maximus tried to have Catherine broken on the wheel; it was, however, the wheel, not Catherine, that broke, though she was later martyred by other means. Catherine became one of the most popular saints in the Middle Ages. (Later, Joan of Arc claimed that one of the voices of inspiration she heard was that of Catherine.) Catherine’s skill in explaining new ideas to a diverse audience is what made her one of the patrons of teachers and all those (like librarians) associated with learning and wisdom. This small depiction of Catherine,  incorporates two key symbols associated with Catherine. As in William Morris’s famous stained glass window of Catherine, she is here depicted with a book in hand. The wheel above her head echoes that in Caravaggio’s painting of her. Catherine is now widely considered to be legendary, but that matters little: what matters is her example and inspiration to those who teach and those who emphasize the importance of wisdom. Dimensions: 4.25 (h) x 2.5 (w) x .75 (d) inches. (Item #15076) $25.00

St. Gregory: Patron of Teachers and Musicians
Gregory the Great (540-604), the first monk to become pope, was raised in a wealthy family but sold his extensive properties in 573, distributed his money to the poor, and began building monasteries. As pope he worked tirelessly to save Rome during times of plague, famine, and siege. He is the patron of musicians and singers because of his promotion of liturgical music: he was so influential musically that a branch of music (the Gregorian chant) is named for him. He is the patron of teachers largely because his written works set out clear instructions for pastoral care and teaching. Gregory emphasized that teachers should adapt their work to the needs of the poor and faltering and should set personal examples for those in their care. 1.25" diameter
(Item #15253) $20.00
