Who was the main judge in the "trial by ordeal"?
In medieval Europe, like trial by combat, trial by ordeal, such as cruentation was considered a "judgement of God" (Latin: judicium Dei): a procedure based on the premise that God would help the innocent by performing a miracle on his behalf. The test was one of life or death, and the proof of innocence was survival.
