Papal bull “Dampnabili Perfidia Judaeorum,” issued by Clement IV to the Archbishops and Bishops in the territory of the Counties of Poitiers, Toulouse, and the Provence [Present-day France]: “We order you to ensure that the following statutes are obeyed: No Jew is permitted to have a Christian serving maid under his charge, especially in his home, to care for his children or for any other purpose. Jews may not erect new synagogues. The Jews may not keep their doors and windows open on Good Friday; on days of lamentation and the Sunday of the Passion, they must not be found outside their dwellings, lest the result be blasphemy against Him who was crucified for us. They may not be advanced to public offices. And they must wear garments whose nature will distinguish them from Christians. Jews must be made to observe these regulations by the use of punishments and canonical sanctions; if necessary, the aid of the secular authorities should be invoked.”
