Papal bull, from Boniface VIII to Magister Paulinus von Aspalt, Canon of St. Paul of Treves [Present-day Trier, Germany]: “The heads of the Convent of the Holy Virgin Mary in Aldenburg, of the Premonstratensian Order, have complained to us that the Jewish inhabitants of Wetzlar, of the Diocese of Treves, had erected a new synagogue within the parish of the convent, despite the fact that this is prejudicial to the interests of the Prior and the convent, and a burden, and contrary to canon law. If this is so, the said Jews must be compelled, on pain of boycott by the Faithful, to make amends for this injury, without option of appeal.”
