“Order/Announcement” of Landgrave Frederick of Thüringen and addressed to the cities Erfurt, Mühlhausen, and Nordhausen [Present-day Germany]: “[…announces that he has expelled all Jews from his domain because…] they bring considerable harm/detriment and plagues/nuisances of many kinds to the land […] which is why he and his Counselors have decided to expel the Jews from the land forever …] to praise God, almighty and his holy Christian belief [… and he will no longer permit any Jews to pass through his land or be given escort. He rescinds all still-valid protection- and escort-letters. The aforementioned cities are to announce this to their Jews.]”
