He connects this account with the many other European myths surrounding the Wild Hunt or Furious Horde, noting that in those in central Europe, the name of Diana was supplanted by that of Holda or Perchta.

The Processions of the Dead[ edit ] In the second part of The Night Battles, Ginzburg turns his attention toward those Early Modern Alpine traditions dealing with nocturnal processions of the dead.

Once at the cave, Dumbledore had to drink the Potion of Despair, which greatly weakened him and caused him to experience terrible hallucinations about his family and Gellert Grindelwald, and he and Harry had to fight an army of Inferi.

He suspected that this was a survival from an "older fertility rite" that had originated in pre-Christian Europe but which had subsequently been Christianized.

This is likely because sincethe trend for interpreting elements of Early Modern witchcraft belief as having ancient origins proved popular among scholars operating in continental Europe, but far less so than in the Anglo-American sphere, where scholars were far more interested in understanding these witchcraft beliefs in their contemporary contexts, such as their connection to gender and class relations.

Hogwarts staff members were not even sure whether the school would remain open. Simultaneously, Malfoy disarmed Dumbledore, unknowingly gaining mastery of the powerful Elder Wand in the process, and admitted that he, Draco, was behind a series of attacks on Hogwarts students, and that Voldemort had ordered him to kill Dumbledore or Voldemort would murder him and his family.

Plot to assassinate Albus Dumbledore Draco Malfoy standing in front of the broken Vanishing Cabinet Draco spent most of his sixth year at Hogwarts repairing a Vanishing Cabinet in the Room of Requirement in order to connect it with the one in Borgin and Burkes in Knockturn Alley, so that Death Eaters could secretly enter Hogwarts Castledespite the increased magical protection surrounding the school.

The Night Battles[ edit ] "I am a benandante because I go with the others to fight four times a year, that is during the Ember Days, at night; I go invisibly in spirit and the body remains behind; we go forth in the service of Christ, and the witches of the devil; we fight each other, we with bundles of fennel and they with sorghum stalks.

Kill me like you killed him, you coward —" Severus Snape: He also noted that "almost identical" beliefs could be found in Livonia modern Latvia and Estoniaand that because of this geographic spread "it may not be too daring to suggest that in antiquity these beliefs may once have covered much of central Europe.

As Harry stormed across the grounds, he was cursed from behind as he was trying to attack Snape by Amycus Carrow. During periods of desperation, Draco invented more conventional ways to kill Dumbledore.

They obtained the horcruxHarry later finding out that it was fake and someone else had taken the real one. After revealing that he was the Half-Blood Prince — the owner of the Potions textbook Harry had been using all year — and reminding Harry to close his mind, master his magical abilities, and to return to the castle to check on his friends and allies; Snape cast an unknown spell on Harry which hit him like a whip to the face knocking him to the ground, but the boy was aided by Buckbeakwho attacked and chased Snape until he Disapparated at the school gates.

Quoted by Ginzburg, He noted that this was not down to the inefficiency of the Inquisitors, because they were effective in the repression of Lutheranism at the same time, but because they were essentially indifferent to the existence of benandanti beliefs, viewing them as little threat to orthodox Catholic belief.

The Benandanti at the Sabbat[ edit ] This section is empty. In the Archepiscopal Archives of Udine, Ginzburg came across the 16th and 17th century trial records which documented the interrogation of several benandanti and other folk magicians.

Furthermore the battle showed that there was now no safe place from the Death Eatersas they had entered the castle, much less they were allowed entrance by a student, and that a staff member allegedly betrayed their trust.

Draco was not able to complete his task, and Snape — who had been awoken by Professor Flitwick to assist the Order — arrived through the barrier. According to Kemnat, this sect contained women who believed that they "travelled" during the Ember Days and cast non-fatal spells on men.

Dumbledore had also deployed members of the Order of the Phoenix to patrol the corridors and the grounds. However, he proceeded to assert that there was "nothing whatsoever" in the source material to justify the idea that the benandanti were the "survival of an age-old fertility cult".

Back at Hogwarts, while the majority of the staff and students were asleep during the late night hour, the Order kept watch on the castle and the grounds as Draco Malfoy woke up and secretly went to the Room of Requirement to let Death Eaters into the school.

In this account, Geiler refers to those people who went on nocturnal visits to see Fraw Fenus Venusincluding those women who fell into a swoon on the Ember Days, and who described a visit to Heaven after they had awoken.

Proceeding with his argument, Ginzburg describes an account by the chaplain Matthias von Kemnat, who recorded the persecution of a sect at Heidelberg circa It was supported by Eliade.

When he proved unable, Fenrir Greyback wanted to kill Dumbledore in his own way, but was blasted aside by Yaxley.
