House of Dibella
"At the House of Dibella, we seek truth through beauty and the worship of the embodiment of beauty, the Goddess Dibella. Dibella smiles on those who give generously to our House. She grants charm and grace to donors. In proportion to their generosity, of course. We are always interested in new initiates to the House of Dibella, though only those possessing skills in the promotion of harmony. To be honest, very few qualify." — A follower of Dibella in Daggerfall



The House of Dibella is the temple dedicated to Dibella the Blessed Lady, Goddess of Beauty and Love. They are generally the place of worship for Dibella. The priests and priestesses within are epicureans and orgiasts who aspire for the beauty of the form and mind. The Order of the Lily is the House of Dibella's militant arm, and the Benevolence of Mara is considered their allies. The House of Dibella is considered enemies of the cult of Sanguine.

The leader of the House is the Patriarch/Matriarch.[1] But there is also the Sibyl, the spiritual leader of the House of Dibella, who directly preach the will and prophecy of Dibella. The process where a new Sibyl is chosen is called the Exalted Protocol of the Dibellan Sybil.[2] It is said that Dibella herself, calls to her chosen Sibyl to create a divine revelation.[3] And so the House of Dibella would retrieve them.

The House of Dibella is known to keep three to four milk-white cats known as the Milady's White Cat in their temples. They are considered sacred to Dibella, as they are seen as her representation in the animal kingdom.[4]
