|~ Balthazar Blake about the Encantus.|
The Encantus is a magical textbook that deals with magic and spells. It is an object featured in the 2010 Disney fantasy movie The Sorcerer's Apprentice. An Encantus is considered a magician’s guideline that teaches sorcerers the art, history, and science of sorcery.
Much like other spellbooks in other fantasy fictions, the Encantus contains instructions on how to perform supernatural charms, spells, and also how to create magical objects such as amulets and talismans. But unlike typical spellbooks however, the Encantus magically records the art, history, and science of sorcery (including both past struggles between benevolent Merlineans' and wicked Morganians). All known Encanti are the copy of the original textbooks of the same name.
According to Balthazar Blake, it is revealed that there have been many copies of the Encantus given to many conjurors, especially those on both sides like the Merlineans and the Morganians. Balthazar gave Dave Stutler one of them. When he did, it was a small "pocket edition," but then Balthazar unfolded it into a huge thick book. Pocket editions seems to be more easier to carry than regular Encanti.
