Writ of Holy Roman Emperor Louis IV [Present-day Germany]: “Louis, the Bavarian (‘Ludwig der Baier’) confirms and inserts (‘trassumirt’)* the writ by which King Adolf pawns off the [merchandize-] tax and the Jews of Frankfurt to Archbishop Gerhard of Mainz on July 7, 1297.” [Researcher’s note: The above is a translation of a German summary of the original Latin text which can be found in Würdtwein’s Diplomataria Maguntina (Volume II). *Transsumieren/Transsumierung is the insertion of a writ – word by word – into a new official document as a form of confirming and reissuing the previous document.]
