ITEM # STG-BR015R
The Latin amor vincit omnia translates as love conquers all, a motto known to all students of English Literature as the one engraved on the brooch worn by the prioress in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, written in the 14th Century. The full quote from the Roman poet Virgil’s Eclogues is omnia vincit amor et nos cedamus amori or love conquers all; let us, too, yield to love. The original ring is now in the collection of the Department of Medieval and Modern Europe, British Museum, London.
