liturgies

The gods of the Elnean Liturgy each hold fast to their own holy doctrines. Whilst the High Worship is a unified temple, the cultures of clerical devotion that fall beneath it's umbrella are vast and different indeed. Theseholy books include the major works of the High Worship, like the Elnean Scrolls, but also incorporate a vast amount of secondary material that was not compiled in the original rolls of the High Worship as well as glosses that have accumulated over the centuries.

Elneas

There is a profound profusion of writing dealing specifically with the Stag-king himself. The Elnean Scrolls are one of the primary texts of the Temple of High Worship, and thus are the most well known in addition to having generated the most criticism and the greatest number of glosses. However, they are not the only Elnean books in existence.

Other Elnean holy books include the Wandering King and the Song of Swords. There are also, of course, the Elnean glossaries which are not holy books in and of themselves but contain additional texts and interpretations; for example, the Great Crown, which deals with various interpretations of the main Elnean liturgy.

There are also heretical Soleician works that detail Elneas death and the ascension of his son to the supreme position in the pantheon. These include the Azcyk Folio and the Sacred Books of Roen.

Gyneth

Gyneth has a much smaller set of texts that detail her position in the pantheon than Elneas. However, since Gyneth is often seen as a kindly and peaceful counterpart to Elneas and a compliment to his generous kingship in her motherhood, a great many secondary sources have been written about her.

The major primary Gynethine liturgy is the Hymn of Days. Glosses and theological works based on Gynethine thought include Meditations on Dawn and the Islander Books.
