The Scapular of St. Benedict is a Roman Catholic devotional scapular. This scapular is not restricted to the Oblates of St. Benedict, and others associated with the order may be invested with it.[1]

The front usually has a picture of St. Benedict, but no picture is necessary. The confraternity and the scapular were endowed with indulgences in 1882 and 1883.
