[[Lore:Glamoril|Glamoril]] (also spelled '''Glamorill''',{{Ref|name=Arena|[[Arena:Labyrinthian|Labyrinthian]] quest and [[Arena:Ria Silmane|Ria Silmane]]'s dialogue in [[Arena:Arena|Arena]]}} and meaning "secret of life" in [[Lore:Elvish|Elvish]]){{Ref|name=Arena}}{{Ref|name=SRUrag|[[Skyrim:Urag gro-Shub|Urag gro-Shub's]] dialogue in [[SR:Skyrim|Skyrim]].}} was a powerful artifact created by Archmagus [[Lore:Shalidor|Shalidor]], a key to the inner workings of life itself which is neither here nor there according to Shalidor.{{Ref|name=Shalidor|Dialogue with [[ON:Arch-Mage Shalidor|Arch-Mage Shalidor]] in [[ON:Online|ESO]]}} The great and mysterious treasure was said to have been stolen from [[Lore:Akatosh|Akatosh]] himself by Archmagus [[Lore:Shalidor|Shalidor]].{{ref|name=AMM|{{Cite Book|A Minor Maze}}}} The massive maze [[Lore:Labyrinthian|Labyrinthian]] was built in the early [[Lore:First Era|First Era]] around the ancient city of Bromjunaar to guard Glamoril, according to some stories.{{ref|name=SRUrag}} While stories have persisted since the First Era and none have ever been able to confirm the existence of Glamoril or its purpose or function,{{ref|name=SRUrag}} Shalidor considered it one of his finest achievements.{{Ref|name=Shalidor|Dialogue}} withWhen [[ON:Arch-Magehe Shalidor|Arch-Magebegan Shalidor]]work inon the artifact, he reached a critical juncture where even his knowledge and power failed him, and needing more he turned to [[ONLore:OnlineSheogorath|ESOSheogorath]].{{Ref|name=Shalidor}}
 
The [[Lore:College of Winterhold|College of Winterhold]] hypothesized that this secret of life he possessed, whatever it was, may have been the catalyst for the practically unbelievable number of writings he produced on a vast array of topics, which demonstrated an understanding of magic that surpassed almost any of either his age or by those as far as the Fourth Era. Other theories by the College include that it perhaps allowed him to live multiple lifetimes in a short span of time, or increased his intelligence and knowledge in ways unfathomable to others. The College was always searching for more of Shalidor's writings in an attempt to understand both their knowledge of the man, and of magic in general."{{ref|name=SRUrag}}<noinclude>
