During the next couple of weeks, I would like to explore some spells utilized in Harry Potter. Sectumsempra is a curse created by Severus Snape, the Half-Blood Prince.
Sectumsempra can be broken down into two different Latin words – sectum meaning cut and semper meaning always. Sectumsempra most likely means “always cut.”
In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry casts the spell, then watches in horror as “blood spurted from Malfoy’s face and chest as though he had been slashed with an invisible sword” (Page 522).
Wow this is a really cool post! The scene when Harry uses the spell on Malfoy in the film was really scary in my opinion.
Thanks! I didn’t want to put that screenshot on my blog for fear of frightening little kids who may visit! I decided to use a less disturbing picture instead.
Good idea 🙂
Thank you Tara. I will try to use it in a sentence 😄
I strongly advise you not to use this in the hospital! 🙂
