Not to be confused with Prayer book.
Saradomin's Book of Wisdom detail

Saradomin's Book of Wisdom, formerly Saradomin's holy book is the God book aligned with Saradomin. For information on how to acquire a God book, see the God books article. With a holy book, a player can preach and perform ceremonies, such as blessing, last rites, and wedding rites by operating it. Also, with level 50 Prayer, holy symbols can be blessed with a holy book by expending 30 Prayer points for each symbol.

Lost books of wisdom can be reclaimed by speaking to Jossik at the lighthouse, or from a player-owned house bookcase, complete with all pages that have been added, for 100,000 coins. However, the book will lose all its remaining charges, requiring the player to add additional pages in order to activate the passive effect.

After completion of One Piercing Note, if the book has all four pages, it can be used to create an illuminated book of wisdom and unlock the god book off-hand override. This requires 60 Crafting and 60 Prayer, and grants 10,000 Prayer and 10,000 Crafting experience (for the first time only). The book of wisdom is not consumed in the process.

Filling the Book of Wisdom with all its pages currently costs 830,336 coins.

The book of wisdom can be activated like scrimshaw to provide a passive effect during combat. The book can be recharged with any Saradomin page, giving 45 minutes of active time per page. This is shared, unchanged, with the illuminated book.

The passive has a 5% chance to activate per hit. When it activates, a lightning strike hits the target for 165-275% damage (55-165% in PvP). This is based on Commander Zilyana's attack.


The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.

A bond made before the God of Order can never be broken. I now join you in the eyes of Saradomin

Last Rites

The darkness of death comes to all mortals; May Saradomin guide your soul to light.


Go in peace in the name of Saradomin; may his glory shine upon you like the sun.


The currency of goodness is honour; It retains its value through scarcity. This is Saradomin's wisdom.
