The Moth Priests, also known as the Order of the Ancestor Moth, are a legendary arcane monastic order based in Cyrodiil. They are famous for their nearly-unique ability to read and interpret the mystic Elder Scrolls, and for the fact that over their lifetime, they become blind in the process.
This phenomena of blindness occurs because of the process by which they read the Scrolls without becoming insane, which will occur in the case of anyone else who attempts to read them.
