Order of the Militia of Christ, miniature
Click to enlarge

Miniature black and white enamel cross flory with eyelet and loop for suspension; the face and reverse identical; height 34.01mm (1.34 inches). The order, founded to defend the interests of the Vatican by the Comte de Beaumont in 1870 after the incorporation of Rome into a united Italy, was taken over by one Domenico Piccoli in the 1880s. It was at this time that the current form of the cross of the order emerged and its members began to style themselves ‘knights’. Relations between church and the association cooled rapidly and in 1904, the Vatican’s Secretary of State wrote to Piccoli, informing him that the Order of the Militia of Christ was not approved by the Holy See. Piccoli died in 1916, but the association seems to have survived, at least into the 1970s.
