Welcome to Dunepedia

The Dune Encyclopedia

Important: Plans are being made for the movement of Dunepedia's content to a more accesible, customisable site. During this process there will be no option to edit pages, though posts on threads are still possible, as is browsing the site.

This is a collaboratively built, non-profit, online encyclopedia of Dune Knowledge, which anyone can edit and view freely. It is designed to facilitate the informational needs of any fan of the Dune Universe. It contains information on the Dune Books (including Frank Herbert's original Dune novels, the preludes, legends and others), the film and television series, and other media. Articles are shown in the style of a wikipedia offshoot, with info boxes, quotes, chapters and categories.

Dunepedia currently has over two hundred pages, but will require many more to meet its goals. We hope, through Dunepedia, to create a wiki that is both informative and practical. To assist in the construction of the wiki, please join the community, and read the Rules of Dunepedia

Bene Gesserit

Sisterhood of the Bene GesseritThe Bene Gesserit (the name being a likely derivative of the Latin phrase "quamdium se bene gesserit", meaning "as long as he/she shall have behaved well") were an ancient sisterhood of women, all skilled in many mental and biological tricks and manipulative techniques, acquired through training, exercises, life and physical disciplines and use of the Spice Melange. The Bene Gesserit's prime area of study was politics, how to shape politics and how to manipulate opinion. Their over arching goal was the "maturity of humanity". In this sense the Bene Gesserit has taken it upon itself the maternal role of upbringing applied to the entire human race.
