Spirituality is one of the Eight Virtues.

Spirituality, founded on all three principles in equal parts, is the concern with one's inner being and how one deals with truth, love, and courage. It is also the awareness of the love that unites one's own inner being to those around one. A centre for rangers, Skara Brae is a city immersed in the study of spirituality.

The shrine of Spirituality is not situated on Britannia. Instead is deep in the Ethereal Void, with access only through a moongate.

Blackthorn's law[]


During Blackthorn's tyranny, Spirituality was turned into a law: "Thou shalt enforce the laws of virtue, or thou shalt die as a heretic."

Spirituality through the Ages[]

Ultima IV[]

Meditating at the Shrine of Spirituality will give these insights;

  • "Seek ye to know thyself. Visit the seer often for he can see into thy inner being!"
  • "Meditation leads to enlightenment Seek ye all Wisdom and Knowledge!"

Ultima V[]

"'Tis now thy sacred Quest to go unto the Codex and learn the neglect of one's Spirit!"

"To forsake one's inner being is to abandon thy hopes for thyself and thy world."

Ultima VI[]

"Throughout this varied and eternal world, soul is the only element. The wealth of the spirit is the only true wealth."


Spirituality is concern with one's inner being, and how one deals with truth, love, and courage.

- from The Book of Lore (Ultima V)

Spirituality is a concern for one's own inner being, and awareness of the love that unites one's own inner being to those around one.

- from A Safe Passage Through Britannia (Ultima Underworld II)

Spirituality is the urge towards steady improvement of the soul. The spiritual are never sated in their hunger for Truth, Love, and Courage. From whatever place the Principles are viewed, spiritual energy rights them into proper balance. In the unity of Truth, Love, and Courage, you shall infuse your spirit with peaceful Spirituality.

- from Journal (Ultima IX)


  • In Ultima IX, the inhabitants of Skara Brae were the only city to withstand the influence of the columns because of their devotion to Spirituality. But it didn't matter in the end, because the Guardian destroyed the city with a firestorm.
