Papal bull “Inter Ecclesiasticos Ordines,” from John XXII to the Archbishops, Bishops and other Prelates in the Kingdom of Germany [Present-day Germany]: “The master and the brothers of the Order of Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem have complained that certain Jews of Germany usuriously extort sums of money from persons, houses and other places belonging to their Order. We order your fraternity to aid in recovering the money extorted as usury. You are not to aid the Jews, since such aid prevents the Order from obtaining justice.”
