Law issued by King Erwig [Present-day Spain] [Provisional]: “If any Jew – of those, naturally, who are as yet not baptized or who have postponed their own or their children’s baptism – should prevent his slaves from being baptized in the presence of the priest, or should withhold himself and his family from baptism, or if any one of them should exceed the duration of one year after the promulgation of this law without being baptized…whoever he may be, shall have his head shaved, receive a hundred lashes, and pay the required penalty of exile. His property shall pass over into the power of the king….”
