Papal bull “Conquesti Sunt,” from Clement V to the Dean of the Church of Zeitz, Diocese of Naumburg [present-day Germany]: “We are concerned by the complaint of the abbot and chapter of the Benedictine monastery of Paulinzelle, that Brendeke, Abraham, Scauedei and Matheus, brothers of Querfurt and Jews of the Diocese of Halberstadt, have extorted great sums from them by way of usury, and therefore, we order you by Apostolic letter that, if this is so, you are to compel said Jews and their lot to make full restitution to the complainants, under threat of removing them form all intercourse with the faithful, without option of appeal.”
