Here's the written procedure of a Jewish oath required of Jews in European courts until it was moderated, modified and finally abolished throughout the 19th century. This particular version is from a part of Germany, and it is dated 1737. Readers will notice that it calls for a Talmud and a "Coscher Sepher Thora," as well as a lengthy procedure whereby the Jew would don his tallit and tefillin, making the relevant blessings, and various biblical passages. It even required making a le-shem yichud! (pg. 12) I wonder what the Noda Beyehuda thought of that.
