Latin term or phrase: in isto et pro isto
Does this mean "in that and for that",and can it be taken in the context of-in honor I live, and for honor will I die?
brian smith
in that and for that
Explanation:
in = in
that = isto (ablative case of 'iste')
and = et
for = pro
that = isto

I think 'that' could refer to practically anything....

Hope this helps!
