The Inanimatus Conjurus Spell[1] is a Transfiguration spell[1] of unknown effect although, given the name, it is likely used to conjure inanimate artefacts.

History

Professor Minerva McGonagall assigned her fifth year students a long and very difficult essay on this spell as their homework on 6 September, 1995 as a break from their work on the Vanishing Spell, which they continued later on in the year, presumably as a means of introducing Conjuring Spells.[1]

Etymology

From the English inanimate (+ the Latin suffix -us), meaning non-living and to conjure (+ the Latin suffix -us), meaning to bring up.
