'Deus Vult!' - 'God Wills It' Christian Crusaders Soldier Ring w/Red Zircon Gemstones
The term Deus vult is Latin for “God wills it.” It was a very popular rallying cry at the time of the First Crusade in the 11th century.
According to historians who wrote about the First Crusade, when Pope Urban II announced that European Christians were going to ride to the defense of Christians in the East, members of the crowd spontaneously started shouting “Deus vult,” suggesting that God willed the crusade.
While the term is closely linked with the Crusades for some people, it could also be viewed in a different way. In the 1996 science fiction novel The Sparrow, several of the Jesuit characters frequently exclaim “Deus vult” in response to something wonderful or astounding, using the term to remark on the marvel of God's works and will. Characters in the novel also say it to explain the unexplainable, using it to mean “God likes it this way.”
The 'Deus vult' ring is made of highest grade 316L stainless steel, oxidized casting finish with cross design with real hand selected Zircon. Zircon is a popular gemstone that has been used for nearly 2000 years.
