DOS Longinus

Longinus is the spear of divinity that pierced Christ's side.


According to legend, the Holy Lance (also known as the Spear of Destiny, Holy Spear, Lance of Longinus, Spear of Longinus or Spear of Christ) is the lance that pierced Jesus while he was on the cross. The Biblical account itself does not give a name to the spear, nor does it otherwise support the legends surrounding this artifact. The spear is only mentioned in the Gospel of John were it tells how the Roman soldier, Longinus, pierced Jesus's side while he was on the cross.

Game specific information

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

Called Ronginus' Spear in Aria of Sorrow. Mistranslated from Longinus, Ronginus is one of the most powerful weapons in the game, the most powerful spear and the most powerful holy weapon other than the Claimh Solais. The spear, although slow moving, has a good attack power and can be found when the player has obtained the bat soul or the hippogryph soul. The hippogryph soul is much easier to obtain since it is only a few rooms below Ronginus.
