“Official Decree” issued by King Adolf [Present-day Germany; Free City of Mainz/Electorate of Mainz]: “We, King Adolf […] promise Our consanguine Archbishop and Arch-Chancellor Gerhard [II] […] his successors and the church of Mainz, with this document, among other things, the ability to restore ownership of the Jews of the city [of Mainz] who [have been bestowed upon him] from Us and the empire […] and to restore jurisdiction and authority over them. Thus, they (Jews) should afford the Archbishop and the church the same ‘services’ such as levies/fees, taxes, […] and other various ways, as all the other Jews who linger/live in the cities and villages of the Archbishopric […].”
