Erects a structure

"...Erecto!" she added, pointing her wand at the misshapen canvas, which in one fluid motion rose into the air and settled, fully constructed, on to the ground before Harry, out of whose startled hands a tent peg soared, to land with a final thud at the end of a guy rope."
—Description.[src]

Erecto is a spell used to set up a stucture of sorts. Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley and Harry Potter used this spell to set up a tent for themselves while hunting Horcruxes in 1997 and 1998.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Erecting a tent is the only known use in the series, but it could presumably be used to erect any structure given that the required materials were present.

EtymologyEdit

Erectum is past participle of erigere, a Latin verb meaning "to erect".
