Re: Research Query: Kol Bo Herem. Text of the oath pronounced

I have the impression that this information can clarify it further:

The Kolbo Herem went in the modern time a kind of transmutation - and is called today Pulsa deNura; Ceremony that according to the study of Zion Zohar in modern Judeism is nothing more than a renewed ritual – based on the old Kolbo Herem - invented by the Eda Haredit.
See: Zion Zohar, Pulsa De-Nura: The Innovation of Modern Magic and Ritual, Modern Judaism, 27:1 (2007) pp. 72-99.
