TESting Your Knowledge Volume 7: Divine Investigation


Good old Tiber Septim is again the subject of this week’s TESting Your Knowledge trivia question. That guy just never gives up the spotlight.

The question is a bit of a curve-ball, though. Rather than studying the lines of princes and kings, you’ll have to brush up on your Elder Scrolls theology to win a signed copy of Greg Keyes’ “The Infernal City.” Have at it:

In the long history of Cyrodiil, the Imperials have had many forms of religious expression. In one form or another, the Eight Divines have always been present. In the current age, there are Nine Divines; the Ninth — Talos, or Tiber Septim — was originally not a member of this pantheon. Long before Talos, the people of Cyrodiil worshipped a different Ninth Divine. What was his name?

As always, the instructions on where to send your answer — as well as the exciting contest rules — are copied below. Good luck!

  1. Well, as the question seems to have ceased to be having bounty on its head, I’d suppose I could tell my answer here without anything wicked to be thought about me.
    Well, Ed, I myself think that divine to be my humble self, id est Shezarr. No, really – there was he. At the times of Saint Alessia she mixed Nords and Imperials and probably some other religions, thus creating path for belief into Shezarr. Nordlings’ belief into Sheor be the cause of the need.
