[Possible/Probable] Ordinances of Ovido issued in the District of Socastiello [Spain] 

Commentary from other sources:
“The most obvious and important document showing us the importance of this Jewish community in the thirteenth century is that of the Ordinances of Oviedo from 1274. The ordinances specify neighborhood in which Jews should live, called the District of Socastiello. In additions, the Ordinances also regulate the business of usury and of stolen objects. Until these Ordinances, Jews lived in the city in the same neighborhoods as Christians, both inside and outside the walls. But from 1274 forward, Jews were required to reside in a particular area, the District of Socastiello. It seems that anti-Jewish guidelines were also followed in the rest of the peninsula, although here the effect seems to have been lower… Keep in mind that in those years in Oviedo houses had already exceeded the wall, and some may also have established outside the walls, as there were estates in the fifteenth century in the west which bore the nickname ‘of the Jews’…Today nothing is left standing of the ancient Jewish quarter. Just the same narrow streets that Christians and Jews shared in the Old Oviedo for centuries and documentation that allows us to reconstruct and imagine that Jewish Community…”

2) “In 1274’s municipal ordinances, the city limited the Jew’s activities: they were not allowed to perform money-lending after sunset, and they could not lend money to women married to Oviedo citizens. Nowadays, there are no remains of the medieval Jewry, and it is not possible to locate the communal institutions that must have ruled Oviedo’s Jewish community’s daily life.”
