Put plainly, I am stuck. This is the 3rd "test" of 5 on the infamous Pilgrim's Path, and in order to pass, I must open the rock-door. Unlike other gates of its kind, there is seamingly no lever or pull-chain that raises it. So, I must believe that the statue of Nocturnal is in some way important. Also, it would seam that the journal of a failed explorer holds a riddle relating to this very test.

"Offer what she desires most, but reject the material. For her greatest want is that which cannot be seen, felt, or carried"

Help a poor Nightingale out?

I have figured it out! You need to douse the torches in the room, as Nocturnal is the lady of shadows.

According to my gameplay and this wiki:

There is two sconces near the statue in the third trial of this quest, on the right side of the right sonce you can see a chain, pull it. And to the sonce, in the left side of it, another chain, pull it too. This way the room will get dark and the path will open.
