Name

Ruše was mentioned in written sources in 1091 as Rovste (and as Roiste in 1184 and Råst in 1372, among other names). The name developed from the plural demonym *Rovьščane, derived from *rovъ 'ditch, trench', thus referring to people living near such a feature.[3]

Church

The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to the Holy Name of Mary and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Maribor. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1387, but was destroyed in an Ottoman raid in 1532. It was rebuilt soon after and then extended in the 17th century. The church was damaged by fire in 1779.[4]
