Westminster Abbey (ウェストミンスター寺院 Wesutominsutā Jiin?), formally known as the Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster, is a large gothic church located in Westminster, London. It is traditionally the place where British monarchs are crowned and buried.
In Toaru Majutsu no Index, the abbey is also a magical facility.
Principles[edit | edit source]
The abbey leaks a large amount of magical energy, which allows certain magicians close to it to hide their use of magic.
Background[edit | edit source]
The abbey was initially founded in the 10th century and later rebuilt by Edward the Confessor in the 11th century, with the present church being constructed in the 13th century on the orders of Henry III. Starting from King Harold and William the Conqueror, the abbey has been the traditional location for the coronations of British Monarchs. It has also been their traditional burial site, starting from Edward the Confessor.
The remains of Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers, co-founder of the Golden Dawn, were also supposedly buried in the graveyard, though another corpse was actually buried in his place, with the real Mathers actually buried in the graveyard of Edinburgh Castle.

Coronzon Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Coronzon Arc
During the Crowley's Hazard invasion of the United Kingdom, Aleister Crowley sought Mathers' supposed grave in the graveyard of Westminster Abbey in order to exploit the corpse's residual link to Coronzon. After discovering that the grave was fake, Aleister, accompanied by Kamijou Touma and Accelerator, encountered the reproduced Mathers and the Golden Dawn. The abbey and its grounds sustained some damage during the initial battle and escape. After wiping out the Crowley's Hazards guided to the graveyard, Mathers sent his subordinates after Aleister's group, remaining in the graveyard with Edward Berridge until he decided he'd waited enough.
