A method divination of to determine if a person is guilty of sorcery. The individual was weighed against the big Bible in a Church. If the person weighed less then he was not guilty.
Another method of this divination was to randomly open the Bible and place a finger on a passage and believe the passage indicated the course of future action which the individual was to take. Later other works were used in the divination such as the Greek epics, classical poetry, and Shakespeare.
