You need to rework this question. As it stands right now it is incomplete and confusing. – ihtkwot Mar 24 '12 at 16:27
If it was anything but this I could google it. Regretfully, the question is just this. To clear further I had a hunch that it was the trial of Joan of Arc, but it is not. Then I thought it was David's when judged for adultry. It is such a context, if clarifies it for any responder. – Leopard Mar 24 '12 at 16:35
I think that this is likely not an answerable question. – ihtkwot Mar 24 '12 at 16:39
This question now seems both answerable and interesting. – RI Swamp Yankee Jul 16 '12 at 14:49
I seem to have found something. This subject is rather difficult to google for, as the relevant keywords are used in unrelated biblical contexts. This is a terrific question for H.SE. – dotancohen Jul 17 '12 at 3:58
