"Gold, Glory, God" is a phrase giving the reasons why the early Italian explorers went to the Americas. When you think of the actual trip the Spanish had to endure to reach America from Italy, they had to have very important reasons to risk starvation, drowning, disease, and murder. Rumors of gold - amounts beyond their wildest dreams - made men believe they could get rich quickly. Glory was to be found in the adventure and in the land they might claim, making them rich lords instead of poor sailors. Some went believing that they must bring their religious beliefs to the peoples of the Americas, and that God would reward them for doing it. So, "Gold, Glory, God"! I wonder how many of those sailors actually found any of those three.
