Deliver Us From Evil is a strange and secretive pendant found in the 19th century among the ruins of Coustaussa castle, Languedoc. It is impossibly encircled by a gold ring, both it and the cross being inscribed with mysterious Latin riddles. The Latin inscription that runs around the back of the ring reads Scutum Arcana Dei
which translates to I protect the secrets of God
. The intersecting text on the back of the cross reads from left to right Eternal blood
(of Christ) and from top to bottom Liberanos a malo
(Deliver us from evil). Made in England of fine British pewter with a gold plated ring with Swarovski crystals. Includes a 32” trace chain.
- Pendant measures 3-1/4" x 2-1/4"
