A fellow member of our local Living History group recommended sending you an e-mail with regards to possible Latin translations of English mottos. Our group, Knights Order of Lion Rampant, re-enacts 14C medieval tourneys and
the like. We are required to maintain a persona and part of making up that persona is to have a motto or warcry (usually in Latin).
I'm looking for something like this:
"There is only God and the sword" or "Only God and the sword".
My crash course in Latin over the last few hours resulted in "Deus et ferrum solus" but I'm only hazarding a guess. For example I'm not sure if ferrum should be ferro (which I think is the ablative).
Alternatively, "God is my sword" wouldn't be too bad either. "Deus est mea ferro", maybe?
Thanks very much for your time,
