Order of Saint Gregory the Great (Ordo Sanctus Gregorius Magnus), knight
Silver-gilt-edged red enamel Maltese cross with ball-tipped finials, on green enamel laurel wreath suspension; the face with a circular central blue enamel medallion bearing the sliver-gilt portrait of Saint Gregory the Great within a gilt ring inscribed ‘St. GREGORIUS MAGNUS’; the reverse with a blue enamel circular central medallion inscribed in gilt letters ‘PRO DEO ET PRINCIPE’ (For God and Prince) within a gilt ring with the inscription ‘GREGORIUS XVI P.M. ANNO I’; some loss of blue enamel from the central medallion of the reverse; on original ribbon, glue residue to the upper reverse. The order was founded by Pope Gregory XVI in his first year as Pontiff on 1 September 1831. Awards of the Order are usually made on the recommendation of Diocesan Bishops or Nuncios for specific services and it is awarded to acknowledge an individual's particular meritorious service to the Church. Saint Gregory the Great was Pope from 3 September 590 to 12 March 604 and is one of just two Popes to have the epithet ‘Great’. He had been Prefect of Rome and exerted enormous influence in extending the authority of the Church and in shaping its organisation and discipline, laying the foundations of medieval Catholicism. The nature of the man may be measured by his being declared a saint by popular acclamation immediately after his death.
