i.e., pledging oneselfto swear an oath ofinnocence, wasn't formally abolished in
England until 1833.6 According to Robert Bartlett, a whole variety of legal “
ordeals” emerged during the reign of Charlemagne: trial by cold water, by the
cauldron, by the cross, by walking on red-hot ploughshares, etc.7 In a “trial by hot
iron,” for example, the defendant would be asked to take ... 7 Robert Bartlett, Trial

Confession or the extraction of 'truth' is not an issue, nor is it a form of punishment
; the ordeal is evidence, a form of trial in and of itself. As Robert Bartlett explains,
the existence of ninth-century material concerning ordeals demonstrates that it
was possible, even in the Carolingian period, to be hostile to this form of
evidence; objections were raised against the practice early in its history and it
reveals the grounds for those objections. Trial by Fire and Water: The Medieval

Water: The Medieval Judicial Ordeal (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1986), and
Hyams, “Trial by Ordeal.” Jews had traditionally been exempt from the ordeal, as
in the Norwich case. The proof of veracity in the water ordeal was that the person
undergoing it sank; in Blois, however, he floated but was judged truthful ...
