Shrines or Altars are sanctified magical objects found in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Dunmer people, the natives of Morrowind, have shrines in all their temples across Vvardenfell dedicated to their Saints and gods. Shrines are three-sided small trioliths, most shrines have one side decorated with the image of a saint of the Tribunal Temple. Similarly, in the Imperial faith, altars may be used to heal; they are known as Healing Altars. To receive the blessing of a shrine, the faithful may make offerings, often in the form of ingredients or a small amount of Gold. The faithful of high ranks, in the Imperial Cult or in the Tribunal Temple, respectively, do not need to make offerings to receive a blessing.
