The school of Thaumaturgy was one of the major avenues of magicka study. Thaumaturgy is a School of Magic that affects will and personal state of the mind, including spells such as levitation (which is said to involve the personal rejection of gravity), etherealness, detection, pacification, water walking, teleportation, summoning and the manipulation of other magical forces.[1][2][3] Conjuration is still superior for summoning from a distance, as Thaumaturgical summoning can be risky and can only draw from the surrounding area.[1] Many enchanted artifacts which were once held in the Battlespire were of a Thaumaturgical nature.[4] Thaumaturgy is no longer considered one of the major schools of magic. Its effects were largely incorporated into other schools, and many of them are not used at all any more.
