Writ of Henry IV for Speyer [Present-day Germany; Prince-Bishopric of Speyer]: “[…] It is permitted for Jews to ask/order (‘bestellen’) Christians to their businesses (for business matters), but not on Sun- and holy-days; furthermore, Jews are not permitted to acquire Christian serfs […]” [Researcher’s note: This writ of Henry contains mostly pro-Jewish regulations except the excerpts translated above.]
