An Imperial Rosarius.[3]

A Rosarius is an amulet that incorporates a powerful conversion field generator to defend the wearer from attack. A rare and highly prized piece of technology, it is also an icon of the Imperial Creed, and entrusted only to the highest officials of the Ecclesiarchy.[3]

Overview

The Rosarius takes the form of an amulet, often displaying the Aquila or a square, stylized cross of adamantium or other durable metal, with a jewel or Ecclesiarchy symbol in the center. It is worn around the neck or waist on a sash, a cord, or a string of prayer beads.[3]

It contains a tiny conversion field generator, emitting a protective energy barrier around the wearer. The field's effect converts the energy of an impact into light; thus, a blinding flash is produced when the field stops a shot. The field is capable of rendering even plasma gun shots harmless.[3]

The rosarius is often referred to as the "soul's armour."[Needs Citation]
