If you can find me six eagles in the sky Ill unlock your talent and help you to control it. The phrase the man has used, is referring to foresight, a branch of magic commonly not appreciated by the magical world.

However we must admit that there are some, how few there may be or how often there talent appears on the surface, who truly possess the skill. In ancient Rome, foresight was seen as the most important branch, even the king would often consult with his priest to tell them what tomorrow might bring.

Harry Potter: A History of Magic

The magic in ancient Rome in mostly found within the pages of the old myths and legends similar to the one of Romelus and Remus. During the time of the old legends, magic was openly used. There where no laws concerning magic. It was believed to be good and helpful in many ways. Astronomy and Herbology were fields of great interest at the time, and many individuals worked tirelessly discovering the signs of the Zodiac as well as developing recipes for medicines using herbs and plants.

Most of the doctors of that time where wizards or witches who knew a lot about healing and plants. They where called Shay-mines, witch means healing hand. They are the ancestors of our healers. However after some time, the first evil wizards and witches appeared in the capital of Rome. Corruption and murder became the daily news from within the walls of Rome and soon all Muggles started to distrust the magical world.

Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Magic/Books and Textbooks

They even became afraid of magic. The true stories of old where forgotten, and the fact that magic, in her essence, was something good, was lost. Truth became untruth and the dream became a nightmare.

So it was that the hate and anger towards the wizards and witches grew. It was rooted deep within the society of the Romans and began the rise to the most sad event from our history namely the witch hunts in the Middle Ages but that is explained in a different chapter. Very little from the history of that time reached our day, but it is quite sure that by the Middle Ages the Wizard world has suffered many changes.

This was a time of legends, magic and war.

The arousal of evil wizards and witches was followed by the appearance of the first secret orders of magic, most of which created by those evil wizards with the objective to get rid of the Muggle persecution, destroy every wizard who make any opposition to this, and, finally, rule the world. The plague, known as the Black Death, which killed millions of both Muggles and wizards, was caused by several curses created by those evil wizards above mentioned.

The development of the Dark Arts was followed by the increasing interest of the wizard population in general for the art of dueling and also for the study of charms and spells. In the end of the Middle Ages, with the creation of the first wizardry schools and of the Wizards Council, the wizard community showed great interest in the Defense Against the Dark Arts.

Another very important historical fact of the Dark Age is the earliest record of the use of Broomsticks as a mean of transportation. Soon the use of the broomstick would be widespread and our all-time favorite sport would appear: the Quidditch was born! It is unknown the date of creation of the first Wizards Council, but we know it was created in Britain by the most famous wizard of all time, Merlin. The Council has been essential in order to assemble the wizard community in one institution in order to achieve goals such as the fighting against the Dark Arts, government, and the pacific coexistence between wizards and Muggles.

Merlin also created the Order of Merlin, originally an institution with the goal of promoting laws to protect and benefit Muggles.

It is unknown when the Order changed from an organization to an award or when its focus shifted from advocating Muggle rights to honoring great accomplishments in general.

At the ending of the Middle Ages happened the most horrifying chapter of our history: The Witch Hunting. The Muggles all over the known world gathered together in order to burn alive every witch our wizard they could find. Thousands of wizards were killed for no specific reason.

It was a time of intolerance and anger. The Wizards Council worked very hard to end up with the persecution, which would only be definitely over during the modern age with the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy.

The ending of the Middle Ages, and beginning of Modern Age, is frequently related to the discovering of American Witchcraft and the creation of the Ministry of Magic as governmental institution in replace of the Wizards Council.

We will be studying both facts in the upcoming chapters. Chapter 5 A History of Magic: The Americas While it is easy to trace magical history in the Old World, from Egyptian mummies down to modern advances in magical DNA manipulation, it is important for every scholar to explore the magical history of the New World.

From the Skinwalker stories of the Southwest United States, to Aztec Nahualli traditions, the Americas are filled with magic traditions still in use to this day. The Americas are filled with strong traditions in animal and magical creature magics.

The Aztec belief in Nahualli, or "totems", is rooted in Aztec histories and deities. The Aztec pantheon is filled with Gods and Goddesses who all take animal form, from Coatilicue's snakes to Huitzilopotchii the patron deity of Mexico , who often appears as a hummingbird.

Nahaualli is available to all people, and modern Aztec worshipers encourage finding one's inner totem. Yet the strongest Nahaualli are often revered wizards and witches, able to shapeshift into their totemic animal's form.

Strong Nahaualli can pass powerfully magical spellsand brew strong potions on the feast days for their animal side.

Thus the Aztec calendar an entire area for separate magical history inquiry remains important for Aztec magic to this day. Beyond Aztec cultures, learning from magical creatures and animals remains a major theme in the Americas.

Stories about animals and magical creatures are part of strong oral traditions for teaching the young. Creation stories across many cultures revere the Turtle Cherokee and Haudenosaunee Confederacy as the base of the world; Spiders spin the world and create many cultures Hopi, Tewa, Cheyenne, Osage, Muskegee , and Coyote is the head trickster who brings chaos to many stories and spells New Perce, Dine, Menomini, Winnebago.

Calling upon Turtle or Spider or Coyote can influence the power of spells, protection charms, and potion making. Magical creatures also abound. The Yunwi Tsunsdi little people still help Cherokee people escape trouble throughout the Smokey mountains, leading children on trails through snowstorms and helping all who respect the land. An offering to the Little People will increase a spell or potion to this day. Healers call on White Buffalo Woman, who brings powerful magic to healing spells.

Another large body of history comes from magical flute traditions.

The famous flutist, Kokopelli, dates in pictures to c. The Kokopelli figure runs through Pueblo and Zuni rain and fertility stories for almost years. Invoking or calling Kokopelli invokes powerful magic; potion makers use Kokopelli to increase the strength of spells, and of course Kokopelli charms are by now ubiquitous. There are other important flute traditions. Inca sikas and antaras often called 'panpipes' reflect the diversity of Inca flutes, and were often used in Inca magic to encourage magical travel and quests for young wizards and witches.

Inca magic used the flutes to find animal spirit guides. One can trace Inca history in the Inca historical eras from Kay Pacha time of the Spanish conquest through colonization to today's hope for a new turning or Pachacutti, and Inca music calls for a new era of Taripay Pacha when Incas will return to their former glory. The use of Inca flute in modern spells for transformation and change are thus evident.

Clearly there is too much magical history in the Americas to be summed up in one chapter, yet hopefully magical students will here see the extent and importance of magical historical tradition in the New World. From further studies of Mayan spellcraft to explorations of charms for the Inuit, the magical historian has much to learn from Americas' magical history.

One of the first men to sail the many seas of the world was Ferdinand Magellan.

He explored the world for the purest materials to be used in wand-making. While he was on his journey, he came in contact with many different native peoples. They traded their wand-making materials for spellbooks that on alchemy. Almost all the materials for wands were lost on the return voyage back to Europe. Both Aztec and Mayan priests had predicted that a great man in shining clothing would arrive to lead their civilizations to unimaginable proportions. Cortez would start one of the biggest wizard wars the Wizarding world will ever know, slaughtering over one million natives, drawing the Mayans to extinction.

This is where the creation of the three unforgivable curses occurred. Cortez would use all three to learn where El Derado, the city of gold was located. He would use the Cruciatus curse to get information, use the Imperius curse to explore the city, and kill them on their return.

After years of gathering information about El Derado, he learned that the natives had used the books of alchemy that Magellan had provided, to build the city. Cortez layed siege to the city, killing all inside. He then recovered the alchemy books along with over five-hundred pounds of gold.

With the extinction of the Maya and the enslaving of the Aztecs, the Spanish created their empire in present-day Mexico.

Harry comes to know that both Lupin and Black were best friends of his father and that Black was framed by their fourth friend, Peter Pettigrew , who had been hiding as Ron's pet rat, Scabbers.

During Harry's fourth year of school detailed in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire , Harry is unwillingly entered as a participant in the Triwizard Tournament, a dangerous yet exciting contest where three "champions", one from each participating school, must compete with each other in three tasks in order to win the Triwizard Cup. This year, Harry must compete against a witch and a wizard "champion" from overseas schools Beauxbatons and Durmstrang, as well as another Hogwarts student, causing Harry's friends to distance themselves from him.

The point at which the mystery is unravelled marks the series' shift from foreboding and uncertainty into open conflict. Voldemort's plan to have Crouch use the tournament to bring Harry to Voldemort succeeds. Although Harry manages to escape, Cedric Diggory , the other Hogwarts champion in the tournament, is killed by Peter Pettigrew and Voldemort re-enters the Wizarding World with a physical body.

In response to Voldemort's reappearance, Dumbledore re-activates the Order of the Phoenix , a secret society which works from Sirius Black's dark family home to defeat Voldemort's minions and protect Voldemort's targets, especially Harry. Despite Harry's description of Voldemort's recent activities, the Ministry of Magic and many others in the magical world refuse to believe that Voldemort has returned. In an attempt to counter and eventually discredit Dumbledore, who along with Harry is the most prominent voice in the Wizarding World attempting to warn of Voldemort's return, the Ministry appoints Dolores Umbridge as the High Inquisitor of Hogwarts and the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher.

She transforms the school into a dictatorial regime and refuses to allow the students to learn ways to defend themselves against dark magic. Through those lessons, Harry begins to develop a crush on the popular and attractive Cho Chang.

Juggling schoolwork, Umbridge's incessant and persistent efforts to land him in trouble and the defensive lessons, Harry begins to lose sleep as he constantly receives disturbing dreams about a dark corridor in the Ministry of Magic, followed by a burning desire to learn more. An important prophecy concerning Harry and Lord Voldemort is then revealed, [19] and Harry discovers that he and Voldemort have a painful connection, allowing Harry to view some of Voldemort's actions telepathically.

In the novel's climax, Harry is tricked into seeing Sirius tortured and races to the Ministry of Magic. He and his friends face off against Voldemort's followers nicknamed Death Eaters at the Ministry of Magic. Although the timely arrival of members of the Order of the Phoenix saves the teenagers' lives, Sirius Black is killed in the conflict.

Harry and his friends are relatively protected from that danger at Hogwarts. They are subject to all the difficulties of adolescence — Harry eventually begins dating Ginny, Ron establishes a strong infatuation with fellow Hogwarts student Lavender Brown , and Hermione starts to develop romantic feelings towards Ron.

Near the beginning of the novel, lacking his own book, Harry is given an old potions textbook filled with many annotations and recommendations signed by a mysterious writer titled; "the Half-Blood Prince. With war drawing near, Harry takes private lessons with Dumbledore, who shows him various memories concerning the early life of Voldemort in a device called a Pensieve. These reveal that in order to preserve his life, Voldemort has split his soul into pieces, used to create a series of Horcruxes — evil enchanted items hidden in various locations, one of which was the diary destroyed in the second book.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows , the last original novel in the series, begins directly after the events of the sixth book. Lord Voldemort has completed his ascension to power and gained control of the Ministry of Magic. Harry, Ron and Hermione drop out of school so that they can find and destroy Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes.

To ensure their own safety as well as that of their family and friends, they are forced to isolate themselves. A ghoul pretends to be Ron ill with a contagious disease, Harry and the Dursleys separate, and Hermione wipes her parents' memories and sends them abroad. As the trio searches for the Horcruxes, they learn details about an ancient prophecy of the Deathly Hallows, three legendary items that when united under one Keeper, would supposedly allow that person to be the Master of Death.

Harry discovers his handy Invisibility Cloak to be one of those items, and Voldemort to be searching for another: the Elder Wand, the most powerful wand in history. At the end of the book, Harry and his friends learn about Dumbledore's past, as well as Snape's true motives — he had worked on Dumbledore's behalf since the murder of Harry's mother.

Eventually, Snape is killed by Voldemort out of paranoia. The book culminates in the Battle of Hogwarts. Harry, Ron and Hermione, in conjunction with members of the Order of the Phoenix and many of the teachers and students, defend Hogwarts from Voldemort, his Death Eaters, and various dangerous magical creatures.

Several major characters are killed in the first wave of the battle, including Remus Lupin and Fred Weasley , Ron's older brother. After learning that he himself is a Horcrux, Harry surrenders himself to Voldemort in the Forbidden Forest, who casts a killing curse Avada Kedavra at him.

The defenders of Hogwarts do not surrender after learning of Harry's presumed death and continue to fight on. Harry awakens and faces Voldemort, whose Horcruxes have all been destroyed.

In the final battle, Voldemort's killing curse rebounds off Harry's defensive spell Expelliarmus , killing Voldemort. An epilogue "Nineteen Years Later" set on 1 September [21] describes the lives of the surviving characters and the effects of Voldemort's death on the Wizarding World.

In the epilogue, Harry and Ginny are married with three children, and Ron and Hermione are married with two children. Rowling , Thorne and director John Tiffany. The script was released on 31 July The play's official synopsis was released on 23 October [25] It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted.

As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places. In-universe books See also: J. Proceeds from the sale of these two books benefited the charity Comic Relief. The book was published internationally on 4 December The main purpose of the website was to allow the user to journey though the story with access to content not revealed by JK Rowling previously, with over 18, words of additional content.

The site has been redesigned and it mainly focuses on the information already available, rather than exploration. The novels fall within the genre of fantasy literature , and qualify as a type of fantasy called " urban fantasy ", "contemporary fantasy", or " low fantasy ". They are mainly dramas, and maintain a fairly serious and dark tone throughout, though they do contain some notable instances of tragicomedy and black humour.

In many respects, they are also examples of the bildungsroman , or coming of age novel, [37] and contain elements of mystery , adventure, horror , thriller , and romance.

The books are also, in the words of Stephen King , "shrewd mystery tales", [38] and each book is constructed in the manner of a Sherlock Holmes -style mystery adventure. The stories are told from a third person limited point of view with very few exceptions such as the opening chapters of Philosopher's Stone , Goblet of Fire and Deathly Hallows and the first two chapters of Half-Blood Prince. Clare's and the Naughtiest Girl series, and Frank Richards's Billy Bunter novels: the Harry Potter books are predominantly set in Hogwarts , a fictional British boarding school for wizards, where the curriculum includes the use of magic.

Hogwarts resembles a medieval university-cum-castle with several professors who belonging to an Order of Merlin; Old Professor Binns still lectures about the International Warlock Convention of ; and a real historical person, a 14th century scribe Sir Nicolas Flamel , is described as a holder of the Philosopher's Stone.

Harry struggles with the problems he encounters, and dealing with them often involves the need to violate some school rules.

If students are caught breaking rules, they are often disciplined by Hogwarts professors. The stories reach their climax in the summer term , near or just after final exams , when events escalate far beyond in-school squabbles and struggles, and Harry must confront either Voldemort or one of his followers, the Death Eaters , with the stakes a matter of life and death — a point underlined, as the series progresses, by characters being killed in each of the final four books.

They open with the death of Harry's parents. There is Voldemort's obsession with conquering death and his quest for immortality at any price, the goal of anyone with magic. I so understand why Voldemort wants to conquer death. We're all frightened of it.During the brief span of just one decade, hundreds of millions of perfectly ordinary people made history: they became the only ones who would remember what it was like when the Harry Potter saga was still unfinished.

Thinking his youth and inexperience exempts him from a famous competition, Harry unexpectedly finds himself announced as a contestant. Healers call on White Buffalo Woman, who brings powerful magic to healing spells. While researching this book, the author consulted the newly appointed headmaster of Hogwarts, Professor Albus Dumbledore , who stated that during his time at the school he had personally seen nothing to convince him that the legend was based on anything other and supposition.

Creation stories across many cultures revere the Turtle Cherokee and Haudenosaunee Confederacy as the base of the world; Spiders spin the world and create many cultures Hopi, Tewa, Cheyenne, Osage, Muskegee , and Coyote is the head trickster who brings chaos to many stories and spells New Perce, Dine, Menomini, Winnebago. The first settlers in an area often traded potion ingredients to create fertilizers for farms, medicines for sickness, and flavoring for food. These reveal that in order to preserve his life, Voldemort has split his soul into pieces, used to create a series of Horcruxes — evil enchanted items hidden in various locations, one of which was the diary destroyed in the second book.

Almost all the materials for wands were lost on the return voyage back to Europe. There is a lot to tell about the ancient ways of sorcery, which makes it almost impossible to discuss everything from its very beginnings. Adam Rogers Adam Rogers.
