What is the Trope Namer? The only place I've ever seen literal jars used as Soul Jars is Might and Magic, so I assume that that's the trope namer.

In GURPS there is a spell that is literally called "soul jar", and Googling those words gets all sorts of results. I think the phrase might be pretty thoroughly assimilated into the English language, and finding an original Trope Namer would be difficult.

This was on the quotes page:

There was a soul-jar, a Scottish soul-jar, he wandered far away.

Problem being: wrong format and no attribution; I can't find the source and can't confirm it's anything to do with with trope. It could be an unrelated use of a phrase.

Would the literal jars with consciousnesses in them from the Hollow Kingdom Trilogy be a kind of soul jar?

I think this should have an alternate title of "Phylactery", for the same reason a lot of other tropes have "bathos": it's technically the proper term. Especially if the mods are going to go through with the cleanup and get rid of all the secondary quotes from pages.

Extra quotes should be moved to a Quotes page. If there isn't one, make it.
