"The Force is the light, the Force is the dark. Jedi choose the light, for all it reveals."
―C-3PO reading a passage from one of the texts[6]

The sacred Jedi texts were a collection of eight bound books and scrolls[4] dating back to the dawn of the Jedi Order.[3] By 34 ABY,[7] Luke Skywalker had collected the texts and stored them in a uneti tree[1] near the first Jedi Temple on the aquatic planet of Ahch-To. They were said to contain ancient scriptures,[4] including the Aionomica, Chronicles of Brus-bu, Rammahgon, and the Poetics of a Jedi[8] lost Jedi wisdom, and abilities,[4] including Force projection, also known as Similfuturus,[3] and Force healing.[9] They describe the tenets and history of the Jedi, and give specific guidance to those studying the path of the Jedi. Future students were encouraged to add to the books over millennia.[3] At least one of the books included a passage on how the Jedi chose the light side of the Force.[6] The texts also had a visualization of the Chain Worlds Theorem, or Vergence Scatter, which was a representation of the World Between Worlds, lightsaber diagrams, and descriptions of Tython's notable beasts. They also contained markers and notes from Jedi librarians from across centuries. Other passages recorded a hyperspace plotting conundrum that was often posed to padawans known as Unsolved Theorem of Master Thorpe. A solution to the theorem known as the Phases of Mortis was also included in the texts.[3]

Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, after feeling a dark disturbance in the Force[3] in 21 ABY[10] and tracking Ochi with Landonis Balthazar Calrissian, added his writings about what he thought of this disturbance in the texts.[3]

Shortly after the destruction of Starkiller Base, Rey encountered the long sought-after Luke Skywalker on Ahch-To and was drawn to the texts after failing to convince him to return to aid the Resistance. He explained to her that the texts, like him, were all that remained of the Jedi religion. After Rey left the planet in hopes of redeeming Kylo Ren, Luke attempted to burn down the ancient tree along with the texts, and was aided in the endeavor by the Force spirit of Yoda, though Rey had already taken them with her aboard the Millennium Falcon, unknown to Skywalker.[4] Shortly afterward, the protocol droid C-3PO assisted Rey in translating the texts.[6]

Rey eventually used these texts to begin to find the way to Exegol, where her grandfather, Darth Sidious, Dark Lord of the Sith and the leader of the Sith Eternal, awaited.[11]

The texts were written in a number of languages, including Tionese, Coremaic, Protobesh, and Basic.[3]


The Rammahgon[]


Skywalker added information on the Sith wayfinder and Exegol to the Rammahgon.

The original Rammahgon was said to have been destroyed over 5,000 years before[3] 35 ABY,[12] but Luke Skywalker found it on Ossus. The book contained at least four precepts, each of which told a story of the universe and the Force. The four stories conflicted. The Fourth Precept was a poem that described battles between gods. The Rammahgon also contained astronomical information, especially concerning Exegol, which included hyperspace lanes, warnings of "deep space dangers," and information on the Galactic Barrier.[3]

Luke Skywalker added his knowledge of the Sith wayfinder to the book along with additions to the book's route to Exegol.[3]

The cover of the Rammahgon was made of a red clay that was formed from interstellar gases. The spine and pages were made of uneti wood. At least part of the book was written in Coremaic; other parts were written in protobesh cartouches.[3]

The Aionomica[]


The Aionomica

The Aionomica were two volumes (known as Aionomicum I and Aionomicum II). They were assembled by Jedi Master Ri-Lee Howell and detail early accounts of "explorations and codifications of the Force."[3]

There had long been rumors of a third volume of the Aionomica; a forgery of said volume was presented around[3] 319 BBY,[13] which led to a scandal.[3]

The Chronicles of Brus-bu[]

The Chronicles of Brus-bu included a description of a technique that could repair a damaged kyber crystal.[3]

The Poetics of a Jedi[]

Poetics of a Jedi was a book written by the Jedi Master Lyr Farseeker. A copy of it was among the eight books that Luke Skywalker managed to collect during his search for ancient Jedi scriptures, and were later passed down to Rey.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The sacred Jedi texts first appeared in the 2017 film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, the second installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy. They also appeared in its sequel, Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker.[4][11]
