The Saint Benedict aka San Benito medal is a sacramental medal that has been believed to repel evil for centuries. According to the Benedictine Order of Monks "We do not know just when the first medal of St. Benedict was struck. At some point in history a series of capital letters was placed around the large figure of the cross on the reverse side of the medal. For a long time the meaning of these letters was unknown, but in 1647 a manuscript dating back to 1415 was found at the Abbey of Metten in Bavaria, giving an explanation of the letters. They are the initial letters of a Latin prayer against evil" that is worn by the faithful to keep the wearer out of harms way. Saint Benedict was an Italian monk and founded the first Western Monastery. He lived from 480 AD to 547 AD.
