The Iliad and the Elder Scrolls

As we prepare our next season, one of our listeners has decided to help us bridge the gap by sending to us a paper he’s written examining the lore of the Elder Scrolls universe when contrasted with Greek mythology.

Tamriel, also known as “Dawn’s Beauty” in the Elven tongue, or “Tah’zukhan” in the language of the Dragons; is the continent on which all The Elder Scrolls games take place. Tamriel is a land of many unique natives, and even more mysteries and conflicts. Many have experienced this world through their own adventures, but completely overlooked many hidden secrets. In The Elder Scrolls mythology there are hundreds of undeniable similarities to that of Greek mythology, acting as an example as to how our understanding of Greek mythology may have changed.

The paper, in its entirety, is available now!
