The God Beyond or the Unknown God is a god that is worshiped on multiple Shardworlds.[1][2][3] It is a belief in a greater God of the universe beyond entities like Shards.[4] It is unknown what relationship the God Beyond has to Adonalsium or to the Beyond.[5]

Mentions of the religion[edit]

  • On Roshar, Hoid refers to the God Beyond in a parable while talking with Shallan.[8] Dalinar also casually mentions the God Beyond while talking to Kaladin.[9]
  • On Sel, it is referred to as the Unknown God by the MaiPon, although this is indeed the same as the God Beyond.[2] Wan ShaiLu prays to the unknown god[10], and her people relate it to the rocks that fell from the sky.[11] Additionally, in a scene from the perspective of Hoid at the back of the Elantris Tenth Anniversary Edition, Hoid refers to the Unknown God in passing.[12]


  • The relation between the Beyond and the God Beyond, like most questions about the Beyond, is currently RAFO'd.[5]
