The Book of Alorn is an historical and semi-religious book belonging to the Alorn people in David Eddings' epic fantasy The Belgariad. Its context includes major events from the creation of the world to the Battle of Vo Mimbre, and has been used as background material for many of the Belgariad and Malloreon novels. Apparently all Alorns can recite the book, even those who have never read it, because, according to Belgarath, it is in their blood. Despite Eddings basing many of the prologues on the Book, it has been mentioned time and time again that the book is not completely accurate (e.g. it credits Aldur for the creation of the Orb of Aldur, whereas it in fact predated him.)
