The New Whirling School

Rotten Deadite, a staple on /r/teslore, has relaunched the Whirling School with all new, very in-depth analysis of the 36 Lessons of Vivec and a nice selection of introductory materials. So if you're confused by the Sermon's content, or would just like to see new meanings and references you've not thought of before, head on over.

Well, I think that Rotten Deadite's introduction for the New Whirling School is a pretty good starting point for the interpretation of the Lessons.

Think of them, in their entirety, as gospels written as riddles, where the reader can find many different levels of meaning, each reflecting that reader's background and circumstances.

In the context of Morrowind, they are the holy words of Lord Vivec, an account of times and places which may, or may not, have happened, which reflect the journey of the Nerevarine from unwitting outlander to sublime Dunmeri saint.
