Erulaitalë

The midsummer prayer to Eru

The Three Prayers on the Meneltarma

One of the three observances held on the summit of the Meneltarma each year in Númenor. The Erulaitalë was a festival of praise held at midsummer. As at the other two annual prayers, the Erukyermë and the Eruhantalë, a prayer of praise would be delivered by the King of Númenor, accompanied by a crowd of silent followers.
