ca. 1298

[Possible/Probable] “Diocesan Synod of Würzburg” issued under Bishop Manegold [Prince-Bishopric of Würzburg; Present-day Germany] [Provisional]: “We have established that sacred objects are not permitted to be pawned off, except during times of [financial] distress of the church and only with the approval of the parishioners. Chalices and holy garments are not to be left with Jews, unless they are securely locked, so that they cannot be touched by their [Jews] hands and bring insult to the Savior.” [Researcher’s note: Additional comment from the source: “The date line is missing from the Latin manuscript. [However], since King Adolf died in a battle on July 2 at Göllheim (Rhineland-Palatinate), the expert conclude that the Synod must have taken place before [July 2].”]
