In a ring all of whose ideals are principal ( a principal ideal domain or PID ), this ideal will be identical with the set of multiples of some ring element d ; then this d is a greatest common divisor of a and b. But the ideal ( a, b ) can be useful even when there is no greatest common divisor of a and b. ( Indeed, Ernst Kummer used this ideal as a replacement for a gcd in his treatment of Fermat's Last Theorem, although he envisioned it as the set of multiples of some hypothetical, or ideal, ring element d, whence the ring-theoretic term.

For, since there are four zones of the world in which we live, and four principal winds, while the church is scattered throughout all the world, and the “ pillar and ground ” of the church is the gospel and the spirit of life ; it is fitting that she should have four pillars, breathing out immortality on every side, and vivifying men afresh.
In principal ideal domains a near converse holds: every nonzero prime ideal is maximal.
The previous three statements give the definition of a Dedekind domain, and hence every principal ideal domain is a Dedekind domain.
