Decree by King Albert I, Duke of Austria and Styria, for the City of Vienna [Present-day Austria]: “[…] 5. Whereas we wish to remain true to the Christian principality [of Austria], so it is that we exile the Jews from the enjoyment of any official functions in the city of Vienna, so that they may not oppress the Christians, under the cloak of either their business or their civil service, since righteous authority has, in the olden times, bestowed them for their sins with the punishment of eternal servitude.”
