Baldur's Gate Wiki

The Noontide Ritual scroll is the second of three scrolls located within the Ruined Temple that provide clues to the three-part Holy Ritual test.


The Holy Ritual test is a ritual that, when performed correctly, will allow the party to acquire one of three symbol pieces that make up the Symbol of Amaunator. The symbol is needed to unlock the magically-warded door to the Lair of the Dark One.


This scroll is a tutorial for the noon prayer ritual of a follower of the sun god Amaunator.

Know, my children, that when the Sun displays the Marvel of my Work and rides high in the firmament above, thou must offer the Noontide Ritual which is pleasing to mine eyes and ears. Malign the Ritual at thy peril. Perform it only as I have written.

1) Let thy voices sound the glorious songs of thy Lord.

(The second part of the ritual has been inked out by the blackest of inks. Perhaps you could deduce the action by comparing this scroll with the rituals for morning and night.)

3) Rejoice on the Glory of the Light as it reigns over the Dark.

These are the things that please me.


The scroll is found in a trapped (Disarm: 40) square stone column in the room next to the lava pit room.
