The Seven-Pointed Star is the main symbol of the Faith, from which the book takes its name.

The Seven-Pointed Star is the holy text of the Faith of the Seven.

Its title is a reference to the seven-pointed star used as a symbol of the Faith, which signifies the seven-in-one godhead. Just as the seven points are all part of the same star, the Seven are not actually seven separate gods, but a single deity that manifests to mankind through seven different aspects or facets.

HistoryEdit

Season 4Edit

Princess Shireen Baratheon mentions to the Red Priestess Melisandre that she has read The Seven-Pointed Star. Melisandre, as a devout priestess in the religion of R'hllor, the Lord of Light, scoffs that it is filled with lies. [1]

Season 5Edit

When Loras and Margaery Tyrell are imprisoned by the Faith Militant, their grandmother Olenna comes to the Great Sept of Baelor to demand that the so-called High Sparrow (the new High Septon) release them. He bluntly tells her that he serves the gods, and the gods demand justice. Olenna sarcastically asks how the gods communicate their will to him, by horse or messenger-raven, but the High Sparrow simply responds that it is through their holy text, The Seven-Pointed Star, and reminds her of the sections of the text prohibiting homosexuality and perjury.[2]

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, The Seven-Pointed Star is the holy text of the Faith of the Seven. Much like the Christian Bible, it is divided into several internal sections or "books", based on different aspects of the Faith. The only specific internal subdivision mentioned so far is the "Maiden's Book", also called the "Book of the Maiden" (the "Maiden" being one of the Seven). Presumably there are a total of seven of these gospel-like sections, one for each aspect of the godhead.

Among other contents, notable sections include narratives about how the Seven first appeared to the Andals and their king, Hugor of the Hill, thousands of years ago when they were still living in the hills of Andalos on the other side of the Narrow Sea.
