Talk:Moria Gate

I think this should be merged with Doors of Durin. This as some kind of disambiguation page is not actually being used and it creates confusion.--LorenzoCB 17:49, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

  • In the LotR we have once "Moria-gate" (= East-gate T.A., Aragorn talking to Boromir after they have escaped Moria: "Believe what you will, there is no other way for us - unless you would go back to Moria-gate, or scale the pathless mountains, or swim the Great River all alone.")
  • There is once "gate of Moria" (= West-gate S.A.; cf. several times "West-gate of Moria", "East-gate of Moria"), once "Gates of Moria" (= West-gate T.A.) and twice "gates of Moria" (= West-gate S.A.). Not once "Moria Gate".
  • In the UT once "Gates of Moria" (= S.A., possibly refers to both gates: "Sauron withdrew the pursuit of Elrond and turned upon the Dwarves and the Elves of L√≥rinand, whom he drove back; but the Gates of Moria were shut, and he could not enter.") – This might be changed to "Moria-gate" and made a redirect to the East-gate. --Tik 20:09, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
Nice, good info. I took care of the links and redirected the both "Moria Gate" (just in case of fast search) and "Moria-gate" to Great Gates, including the last one as one of the "other names". Thanks!--LorenzoCB 22:00, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
