Ishual posted 31 Oct 2008, 09:10 by Ingalira, Commoner

After rereading the series I was wondering if Dunyain sanctuary of Ishual was a former Nonmen mansion, the name itself is nonmen in origin and in TTT when Kellhus first comes into the mansion where his father is staying he remarks that it reminds him of Ishual. The thousand thousand halls sounds to me like a gallery of nonmen construction which was expanded for Dunyain purposes. view post

I think if you were to check the encyclopedic glossary you might find the answer to this. I have loaned my copy of TTT out to a friend, so I can't check it right now but I'm sure someone on the board can look it up. I want to say that you're right. In the prologue for TDtCB, it says Ishual succumbed at the height of the Apocalypse, but in the next couple sentences the prologue states it's the secret refuge of the Kuniuric High Kings. It makes no reference to Nonmen. As I said earlier, check in the back of TTT. view post
