Writ of Holy Roman Emperor Louis IV [Present-day Germany]: “Louis, the Bavarian (‘Ludwig der Baier’) informs the Jews of Worms, his chamber-servants, that he has confirmed the knight Wipfelin from Rosengarten the ten Mark silver, which emperor Henry had done so for his services, which are to be paid by the Jews of Worms to the empire. He also orders Jews [in Worms] to submit the arrears from last year.” [Researcher’s note: The above is a translation of a German summary of the original old text which is located in the City-Archives of Worms.]
