Default Holy Skills (Esoteric Medicine and Exorcism) and Power Investiture question

Hi, friends!

Does this two skills gain bonus from Power Ivestiture (Holy)?

As in Adventurers p. 20
Quote:
Add its level (maximum six) to all rolls required to use Holy abilities.
So it does not include the two Holly Skills Esoteric Medicine and Exorcism because the book separete Holy Skills from Holy Abilities?

Or I can consider Holy Skills as Holy Abilities and, for example a Cleric can have Healer and add both PI bonus and Healer bonus to Esoteric Medicine?

Thanks!

The PI bonus doesn't add to Exorcism or Esoteric Medicine.

Neither the template nor the sample characters show it, anyway.

Thanks! I was thinking this way but I was afraid of beeing unfair so needed proper confirmation.

Yep, Celjabba has it right. If you want to see the official word from Kromm about clerics' special skills not receiving the bonus from PI, see this thread:
