Talk:Halls of Mandos

Perhaps "Halls of Waiting" is not its common name. Actually halls of waiting (no capitals) only appears once in The Hobbit (Thorin's last words, Ch. 18), in The Silmarillion there is once mentioned the Halls of Awaiting (in the beginning of Ch. 7 - also in the Index). Doesn't appear in the LoTR. --Tik 04:30, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out, Tik; I've made some quick changes to the article. A further thought (heading into theology here): the article speaks about the Halls of Mandos as the gathering place for the souls of Men and Elves, but wouldn't Thorin's words suggest that the souls of Dwarves should perhaps be added as well..?--Morgan 18:15, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
