Papal bull “Professionis Christianae,” issued by Clement IV to John de Salins, Count of Burgundy [Present-day France]: “We, who are aggrieved by what has come to our ears, know that many in your lands and adjacent ones have committed a crime of depraved heresy, after having been reborn through holy baptism, by refusing to reject the damnable lies of Judaism, and instead reverting to its old and corrupt blindness. This deadly herb of heretical apostasy must be uprooted in full cooperation with the Dominican Inquisitors.”
