Canons issued by the Council of Saint-Quentin (1271) [Present-day France] [Provisional]: “To insure that Jews not be of higher station than Christians, as well as to prevent offenses against both canon and civil law, secular princes are not to aid Jews in collecting debts owed by clerics, under penalty of vigilant and unrelenting canonical punishment, especially if such aid is given by way of distraining [church] property.”
