“Writ” of King Charles IV of Bohemia [Present-day Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, etc.; Kingdom of Bohemia]: “King Charles IV absolves the monks of the cloister of Waldsassen of any debt they owed to Jews – his chamber servants — who were formerly killed and came to demise in Nuremberg, Eger, or any other place by the fate/doom of God.” [Researcher’s note: This writ is particularly noteworthy, because the King had absolved the cloister in Waldsassen 10 years earlier of all of their debt owed to Jews. This is translation of a German summary of the original Latin.]
