Writ of Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV [Present-day Germany]: “Charles gives all goods and properties of the Jewry in Speyer to the local citizens [for the services they have provided to him in the past and will in the future and for all the damages they have suffered …] and declares that all Jews who will settle [in Speyer] in the future belong to the city as well.”  [Researcher’s note: The above is a translation of a German summary of the old original text both of which can be found in the cited source.
