Shrine inscriptions[edit]

Shrine of Humility: "Once, Lord Vivec met a farmer whose guar had died, making her unable to feed her family or village. So Vivec removed his finery and toiled in the fields until the crop was harvested. Thus we pray for the same humility Lord Vivec showed that day."
Shrine of Daring: "When Sheogorath tricked Baar Dau to hurl itself upon Lord Vivec's city, the poet-warrior froze the rogue moon with a single gesture. Overwhelmed by his courage and daring, the moon swore itself to eternal service of the Tribunal and its works."
Shrine of Generosity: "Long after our triumph over the Dwarves, the people wished to build a monument to the heroes of that war. Vivec thanked them, but said that it would be better to dedicate a monument to all people, great and small, who suffered and died in the war."
Shrine of Courtesy: "In a battle with Mehrunes Dagon, Vivec gave his own silver longsword to the Daedra Lord rather than dishonor himself by fighting an unarmed foe. This so impressed the Dremora that they now share a bond of respect with the followers of the Tribunal."
Shrine of Justice: "Once Vivec awoke to find himself and his followers trapped in hardened ash. Saddened by their suffering, his tears weakened the ash, freeing him to save his people. This is Vivec's heroism—his tender heart provides strength when his might fails."
Shrine of Valor: "Lord Vivec once fought a battle with Ruddy Man, the father of the Dreugh. When he defeated Ruddy Man, Vivec spared his life, on the condition that Ruddy Man and his children would give up their tough hides to serve as armor for the Dunmer."
Shrine of Pride: "Have trust in the Tribunal, for they protect us from our foes. Have love for the Tribunal, for they bring us help in time of need. Give respect to the Tribunal, for their indomitable will and power is the pride of all Dunmer."



  • The Shrines of the Seven Graces also appeared in TES3: Morrowind, but the Shrine of Pride was located in the Red Mountain region near Ghostgate instead of Mount Kand. The locations of some other shrines have been simplified, for example the Shrine of Courtesy and the Shrine of Valor are where the entrances to the Puzzle Canal and the Koal Cave would be, instead of actually being inside. The Shrine of Generosity was also slightly moved, being located in the Temple Canton instead of the Palace Canton.
  • A book named The Pilgrim's Path also includes the shrine inscriptions, albeit worded slightly differently.
