Jurgen Windcaller, as seen in Skyrim.

Not to be confused with The Way of the Voice.

The Way of the Voice is a pacifist creed developed by Jurgen Windcaller. It preached the Thu'um should only be used for the worship and glory of the gods rather than martial exploits.


After the defeat of his army at the Battle of Red Mountain, Jurgen Windcaller spent seven years pondering his defeat. Jurgen came to the conclusion that the gods had punished him and his army for misuse of the Thu'um.[1][2]

This creed is still honored by the Greybeards and their leader, Paarthurnax. In the aftermath of the Dragon Crisis in the Fourth Era, Paarthurnax sought to spread the philosophy to the rest of his dragon-kin.[3]
