|"Is this all real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really exists), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
David was a king who ruled over Israel and Judah during ancient times. He was a prominent figure in the Bible, and was credited with writing many of the psalms contained in one of its books, the Book of Psalms.
The Psalter, a volume incorporating the Book of Psalms and other devotional writings, was included in the Book of Common Prayer. A copy of the Book of Common Prayer was kept in the library at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Behind the scenes
- In the Bible, David slays the giant Goliath while still a boy, casting a stone at him with a sling. However, the Chocolate Frog Card for Goliath only refers to the giant's slayer as a "young boy," and does not explicitly name David. It is thus possible that Goliath was not slain by David in the Harry Potter universe.
