The Crime & Punishment Issue

CSI Fantasy
This article takes a systemless look at “forensic magic” from British and European folklore, dating from the Middle Ages up to the 19th and early 20th centuries.

While this may way have been the case in the 16th and 17th centuries, the original Judicium Dei of Anglo-Saxon law formed a coherent body of legislation revolving around the certainty of divine intervention on behalf of an innocent party.
