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.
