* TrialByCombat: An acceptable and legal recourse. Hugh Beringar gets his job this way. In "The Monk's Hood," [[spoiler:Cadfael and Hugh decide that Lazarus--aka Guimar de Massard--can go uncharged for Picard's death because this was the manner of it]].

** Peter Clemence's singular scene shows him insulting his country cousins, sleeping with his cousin's betrothed, and (unlike the clergy at Shrewsbury abbey) is a monk solely for personal and political gain.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Cadfael's beloved novice Brother Oswin disappears without a trace in the final season, whereupon he's replaced by SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Brother Adam.



* EurekaMoment: Cadfael has several of these, usually prompted by someone else's random comment.



** ''The Rose Rent.'' [[spoiler: The murderer is dying and, as in ''Monk's Hood,'' repentant.]]




to:

* WhatTheHellHero: In ''The Raven in the Foregate,'' both Eluned's sister Katherine and, to a lesser extent, Cynric chew Cadfael out for sending Eluned away when she came to him for help. An ashamed Cadfael admits he behaved badly.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadMansChest: Played with in ''A Morbid Taste for Bones.'' The monks successfully dig up St. Winifred and house her bones in the reliquary. [[spoiler: Then, after Brother Columbanus is killed, Cadfael conspires with the locals to sneak her bones back into her original grave, and stows Columbanus' corpse in the reliquary instead.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ToBeLawfulOrGood: Cadfael has to make this call a few times.
** ''Monk's Hood.'' [[spoiler: Cadfael does catch the murderer and expose him in public. That done, though, he lets the man go, on the grounds that he is a SympatheticMurderer who clearly repents of his sin.]]
** ''The Raven in the Foregate.'' [[spoiler: Technically, nobody murdered Father Ailnoth: one man was defending himself and the other refused to help Father Ailnoth when he fell into the river. However, Cadfael lets one escape back to Wales and helps the other craft a story that suits Beringar and Lord Casale.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Confessional}}: Subverted multiple times. Several characters ''want'' to confess to Cadfael, but as he keeps explaining, they can't: he isn't a priest. This becomes important for plot purposes in both ''The Devil's Novice'' and ''The Raven in the Foregate.''

** Lord Cassale from ''The Raven in the Foregate'' and Le Gaucher from ''The Virgin in the Ice'' both delight in killing hapless peasants.
