Warehouse 13, St. Joseph of Cupertino Medallion Artifact

original movie prop

In fourth season episode The Sky's the Limit, Myka and Pete travel to Las Vegas, where tourists are suddenly plummeting to the ground out of the clear blue sky, with all the signs of having died at high altitude. The trail leads to an old Vegas magician, Monty the Magnificent, who seems to suddenly have the actual ability to make people levitate. Monty doesn't know that his newfound magical skill is actually due to the effect of a medallion that once belonged to St. Joseph of Cupertino, now carried by his assistant (and granddaughter) Rose, who wants her grandpa to have one last hurrah. Rose doesn't understand that every artifact has its down side; in this case, each time the medallion is used to levitate someone new, the last person it was used on flies up in an uncontrolled ascent into the stratosphere.

 

Joseph of Cupertino was an ascetic friar and Catholic priest who lived in the Kingdom of Naples in the early 17th century, well-known during his life for multiple and sometimes dramatic instances of levitation while saying mass or praying, often after entering a state of rapture. Joseph was deemed too disruptive by Church authorities, who confined him to a small room out of the public eye, and eventually had him investigated by the Inquisition. Joseph is the patron saint of air travelers, pilots, astronauts, the mentally disabled, test takers, and poor students.

 

1" (2.5 cm) two-sided cast metal medallion on a long silver trace chain necklace.
