Ordeal by Fire in Medieval Ireland

Abstract : The medieval Cormac's adventure in the Land of Promise contains a list of 'The twelve truths of the kingdom', twelve ordeals that include the cauldron and Morann's three collars. The paper discusses the 'cauldron of truth' in early Irish law and then proposes that Morann's third collar can be regarded as an ordeal by fire.
