“Writ” issued by King John of Bohemia [Present-day Czech Republic, Germany, Poland; Kingdom of Bohemia]: “King John of Bohemia grants Bishop of Olomouc, Konrad I, permission to keep only one Jew (who is free of all Jewish and other obligations and taxes as well as free of any foreign subjugation and only subject to the Bishop) in each of his cities, Svitavy, Zwittau, Müglitztal, [Kremsier], and [Wischau].” [Researcher’s note: The above is a translation of a German summary of the original Latin, which can be found in the Codex diplomaticus et epistolaris Moraviae. While this writ appears to be pro-Jewish at first glance, effectively, it limited the number of Jews who could settle in a specific region.]
