Chapter 1 of 56

Chrm 101 Week 1

Professor Quilmane,

In this lesson we learn about Modern-day spell casting.

The first instance of dedicated wand making was the Olivander family in 382 BC.

In 1000 AD, wizards partially separated from the muggle world and were ruled by the Council of Warlocks for 400 years. 

In the 1400s various magical governments were established based on culture and locations.

In 1689, the International Statue of Secrecy  was established and there was a complete separation of magic and non-magic worlds. 

In 1875, the Decree for the Reasonable Restriction of Underage Sorcery was established. Under it, all witches and wizards under the age of 17 has a trace put on them. There is only 3 exemptions to this Decree. Magic may be used to protect the life of ones self, to protect the life of another person (magical or not), and when in one's home. However, use of magic at these times must be done cautiously. Penalties are high if used inappropriately or in front of muggles when at home. 

Wands are a wooden shaft containing a core from a powerful magical creature. They are used to direct our power.
