Valaritas, also named The Four-Plate Door, it is a four-plate stone door (it is speculated it may refer to "The Doors of Stone") located in the Archives.

What is behind the door remains secret for most people of the UniversityElodin claims to know it, suggesting that it is an issue that concerns masters of the University although Puppet seems to know something about it, given his reaction to Kvothe's question about it.

Description Edit

In The Name of the Wind , Kvothe describes it as follows: "It was made of a solid piece of grey stone the same color as the surrounding walls. Its frame was eight inches wide, also grey, and also one single seamless piece of stone. The door and frame fit together so tightly that a pin couldn't slide into the crack.

"It had no hinges. No handle. No window or sliding panel. Its only features were four hard copper plates. They were set flush with the face of the door, which was flush with the front of the frame, which was flush with the wall surrounding it. You could run your hand from one side of the door to the next and hardly feel the lines of it at all.
In spite of these notable lacks, the expanse of grey stone was undoubtedly a door. It simply was. Each copper plate had a hole in its center, and though they were not shaped in the conventional way, they were undoubtedly keyholes. The door sat still as a mountain, quiet and indifferent as the sea on a windless day. This was not a door for opening. It was a door for staying closed.
In its center between the untarnished copper plates, a word was chiseled deep into the stone: valaritas."
