"If it is the will of God -- it will be done!"
In 408 AD, in a Roman Temple in the village of Rieti in Northern Italy, a Catholic Priest warned Mericus that the Visigoth scourge was God’s wrath for his consent to have Deidre, a beautiful Irish disciple of the God Lugh that the priest believed spread her heathen beliefs like a plague, as a slave. Swayed the priest’s words, Mericus proclaimed that Deidre had to die if they were to be cleansed of the Visigoth curse, but as he was about to kill her, Aric Dacia, a Visigoth, impaled him with his sword. After Aric slew the priest, he released Deidre and took her with him because, even though she was a heathen and his uncle Alaric, the King of the Visigoths, would disapprove, she was better looking than the women in his camp were.
