The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 154 - Holy, holy, holy

I remember once seeing a trivia question, "Which of Tolkien's characters has physically touched a Silmaril?" There was some debate over whether Varda would have held them in her hands to hallow them, as shown here, or if she could have done it remotely.

Interestingly, in the earliest drafts of the Silmarillion it was Manwë who hallowed them and Varda who made the prophecy that in the published book Námo gives.


Part 154: Holy, holy, holy


Next time: Part 155

Chibis by tektek.org
Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series.
