“Privilege” in the First Oath Book of the City Council of Cologne [Present-day Germany; Electorate of Cologne]: “[…] Judges, ‘scabini’*, councilmen, and other citizens of Cologne announce […] that all the Jews living in or outside of Cologne are permitted to purchase or rent a house in the Jewish quarter, so long they pay a quarter of the purchase price to the city of Cologne.  […]” [Researcher’s note: *“Scabini” were honorary laity, who, together with judges, assessed the actions of defendants in criminal courts and established the measure of the sentence.]
