Twelve Laws of Making and Moving

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

The Twelve Laws of Making and Moving were a Forerunner religious text, and a central part of their belief system, the Mantle. Faithful followers of the religion would pray by silently repeating the laws, accompanied by swaying motion according to the rhythms.[1]

The Didact's father evoked the Twelve Laws of Making and Moving, its Upper and Lower Tenets of Authority, and the Rules of Virtue. As a result, millions of Forerunners began to believe that reparation was in order, calling for the restoration of the lost rates and bringing back the immense knowledge and rituals that had been confiscated and hidden away by the Builders.[2]
