King Arthur's adamantine shield of faith

But all that was not such, as seemd in sight,
Before that shield did fade, and suddeine fall:
And when him list the raskall routes appall,
Men into stones therewith he could transmew,
And stones to dust, and dust to nought at all;

     Edmund Spenser, The faerie queene, ll. 3-7.
