Summoning Objects

Can all objects be summoned? Because in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 'Harry is seen summoning Neville's wand. But if wands can be summoned, how come Horcruxes can't be. It's not like there's a rule against summoning magical objects, is there? Dement0r 18:58, June 28, 2011 (UTC)

Horcruxes most likely have a spell or charm put on them so that they cannot be summoned by the Accio spell.Piper13 01:19, November 22, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, it seems clear that certain types of objects either are or can be protected against summoning - the charm doesn't work on the Cloak of Invisibility either. ProfessorTofty 01:25, November 22, 2011 (UTC)

Er, what does it mean in latin

The larger the object and the farther away it is, the stronger the summoning charm needs to be. But i wonder, with a strong enough charm, could you summon people? Voldemort could easily get hold of Harry and Hermione could more easily find her parents, I'm sure there are many other possibilities aswell. 01:18, January 15, 2012 (UTC)Ariana Dumbledore

21st century

Does Wonderbook mention the 21st century? This would indicate that the game is set after 2000, wouldn´t it?--Rodolphus (talk) 14:35, November 17, 2012 (UTC)


I was reading a HP fanfiction and this spell came up so I came here to look how to say it right and I looked up some more on this spell. Since it's an actual Latin word I was wondering if since the UK audio book and games and the US audio book use different ways of pronunciation along with the Anglo-Catholic pronunciation being different from them should we add the other pronunciations to go with the movie version?Kyuu19 (talk) 04:49, May 21, 2014 (UTC)


The article states:

Horcrux can nullify the effect of the charm no matter how clear the caster thinks of its.


I always got the impression that additional charms need to be placed on Horcruxes to prevent summoning, just like on any other object.

My impression is supported by Dumbledore letting Harry try to summon it in the cave in HBP. (He wouldn't have let him try if this was generally impossible. Both of them did not know that the true Horcrux was not there anymore.)

Furthermore, Griphook states in DH part 1 that Summoning charms do not work in Gringotts in general when Hermione tries to summon the cup. --Rodolphus (talk) 12:06, December 23, 2016 (UTC)

Bumping.--Rodolphus (talk) 16:34, June 23, 2017 (UTC)

I don't think there is something that proves the Summoning Charm cannot summon Horcruxes. Dumbledore would have known whether Horcruxes cannot be summoned. Hermione also read up about Horcruxes and even she tried to summon the locket in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. She then says it would not work when their are counter-enchantments on them.
They do try to summon the diadem in the Room of Requirement and nothing happened, but that may be because of counter-enchantments. The Gringotts one you mentioned. I think the line needs to either be rephrased or removed. -- Kates39 (talk) 18:27, June 23, 2017 (UTC)
