Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

Deus vult (Latin, God wills it) was the cry of the people at the declaration of the First Crusade by Pope Urban II at the Council of Clermont in 1095. The phrase appears variously as Deus vult (Classical Latin), Dieu le veut (French), Deus lo vult (macaronic Latin used by Italians), etc.

Deus lo vult is the motto of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, a Catholic order of chivalry.
