Sept. 9, 1338

Borough charter, issued by Albrecht II, Bishop of Passau, to the town of St. Pölten [Present-day Austria]: “67. We also ordain that the Jews in our town of St. Pölten submit all contracts and collateral that they hold for their moneylending to our people in the town or around it, to a magistrate, and that they obtain from the judge a document [confirming] that they have done so. Whichever Jew does not do so, he shall have no claim against any Christian woman or man, if the Jew has not submitted the contract to the judge, and the Christian dies within the same year.”
