The Book of Aeol
The Book of Aeol is an ancient text which is the most important religious text for the religion of Sajhdula. The original book was written on hundred scrolls which were kept in the Library of Sajhdula and therefor survived the destruction of The Pulse. They have since been translated and copied numerous times. In present day it is one of the most common books in Sajhdulan households.
It is said the original Book of Aeol was once written by Aeol himself. In reality it was not an actual book as we know today but rather a selection of scrolls written on a paperlike material. The language of the scrolls is of an unknown origin and the only one able to read it today is The Oracle of Sajhdula. She is the one who translated the scrolls in the first decades after she became the leader of Sajhdula. And from these translations a newer version of the Book of Aeol was made. This time in actual book form. Throughout the centuries the book has gotten several updates. Most of those were to keep up to date with language changes throughout time.
