I 've heard lately in Merlin on BBC 3 the expression "to cast judgement on something". To give you a bit of the context, here's what I could read on my TV programme : "Arthur heads to the white mountains on a quest to find three soothsayers who are casting judgement on his kingdom." I'm not sure if the meaning is only "to judge" or if the fact of saying "to cast judgement on" adds a nuance. So, I'd be happy if you could help me find a fitting translation, give me a synonym with an example if possible. Thanks in advance for your cracking replies.
