The solid bronze Ignatian Medallion Plaque with AMDG holds a special place in the Creator Mundi Collection, a collection of pieces hand-chosen by Creator Mundi to represent our core artistic ideals. This heirloom-quality Jesuit medallion features a design reflecting the symmetry of the natural world and the flames of St. Ignatius’ passion for his mission.
The letters IHS on this sunburst Ignatian medallion are the first three letters of Jesus in Greek: ΙΗΣ (Jesus in Greek: ΙΗΣΟΥΣ or Ιησους). The text on the back reads: Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam (translation: “For the greater glory of God”), coined by St. Ignatius himself.
