This question already has an answer here:
- Necromancy In Harry Potter 3 answers
According to the Harry Potter Wiki.
Whilst it is possible to create Inferi, these are mindless creatures with no soul or intelligence, despite possessing human corpses and hence are not truly "raised" persons. Therefore, Necromancy does not work in this respect and it is indeed known to be impossible to truly resurrect the dead.
However, I am not fully sold on the legitimacy of this article. It seems under developed to me. It also fails to mention any ways besides magic (creatures, items, magical plants) to revive the dead.
Is there any canonical information that has been mentioned either by Rowling or the Harry Potter Universe that either eliminates the possibility, leaves it undetermined, or confirmed it?
*Note: Please do not use the wiki as the main reference in an answer, as I have already looked at that source and feel that it does not answer the question fully.
*Note: I do not feel that this is a duplicate of the other necromancy question. The answer that were given to that were more reanimated dead - zombie oriented, I want dead people becoming living again.
