“Order” of the Administrators of the Archdiocese of Mainz [Present-day Germany; Free Imperial City of Mainz/Electorate of Mainz]: “We, the administrators (‘provisores’) of the Archdiocese of Mainz, assign the knight Tillman of Rüdesheim as compensation for his imprisonment and for what he has suffered in the service of the late Archbishop Gerhard [II] or rather the church of Mainz, […] all the Jews in Mainz […] to move to the City of Bingen or the village of Rüdesheim. The Jews […] are pledged (pawned off) to Tillmann for 50 Mark of Cologne Pennies […] until the administrators (‘provisores’) or the future Archbishop or the church of Mainz have released them (purchased them back) for the remainder of the outstanding balance. […]”
