There seems to be some disagreement on this point based on the registry of Varad, a Hungarian town whose registry of ordeals has been preserved. Here minor problems such as debt and cattle ownership also occasioned ordeals, along with serious crimes. See I. Zajtay, "Le registre de Varad. Un Monument judiciaire du début du XIIIème siécle", Nouvelle revue historique de droit français et étrange, 32 ( 1954): 527-562.

See also Colman, "Reason and Unreason", 578, where she notes that even early laws tend to prefer investigation first.
