The Fibuliam was a room in the Sacred Chancery of the Great Temple in Istar. The door to the fibuliam was an alabaster door chased with gold. The door did not have a latch or keyhole, but was opened by a special key of a golden fork and silver hammer. When struck together three times the harmony would open the door to the chamber. The fibuliam was a circular room with ringed shelves along the walls that ran from the floor to the ceiling for five stories. A spiral ramp in front of the shelves allowed access to the books. At the top was a sacred triangle.

Over the course of the empire's history, the Kingpriests declared certain written works as heretical. The clergy would burn all copies except for one. These works would be kept in the fibuliam for study.
