”Jesker teaches that only humans have the ability--or the curse--of being oblivious to the Dor
Jesker is a religion practiced on Sel. It is one of the oldest religions on Sel, and was effectively exterminated when the Duladel Republic was overthrown by Hrathen. Many call Jesker a 'primitive' religion, though saying this was considered offensive to its followers.
Jesker appears to involve spirits. The Dor is referred to as the Jesker "overspirit". Jesker is said to look to the Dor and attempt to understand it. Followers of the Jesker religion strive to bring themselves in harmony with the Dor and subsequently with nature, and taught that everything knew of the Dor, except humans, who could be oblivious to it. Jesker also ascribed importance to the heaven's movements, and according to Hrathen, worshipped the moon.
When Raoden first entered Elantris, an Elantrian said that all priests, including Jesker, said that they were damned. This may not be indicative of Jesker itself, as Arelish have more experience with the Mysteries than the defunct Jesker.
