“Jews to Function as Liability” for the Parishes of Lodengereut and Petelngeruet [Present-day Germany; Prince-Bishopric of Bamberg]: “Freidrich Zollner, […] chief nurse of the hospital of St. Katharina, as well as Otte Potschmann, head of the hospital/hospital ward (Spitalmeister) of Lodengerewt (Lodengereut) and Petelngerewt (Patelngereut) are to pay an annual interest of 15 Bamberger Pennies for hospital goods on St. Martin’s Day. If the hospital is unable to make the assigned interest payment on time, St. Jakob of Bamberg is to take the interest/money from the Jews.”
