“Writ” of King George of (Podebrady) [Kingdom of Bohemia; Present-day Czech Republic, Germany, Poland]: “[…] Also, Jews have the obligation to register their pledges with the judge (‘rychta’). Whoever sells a pledge that a Jew had not registered, shall lose the item or that for which he sold it for, but always [in a manner] that does not damage our royal laws because it was reported to us by credible people, that this benefit* has always belonged to and were due to the judges (‘rychta’). […]” [Researcher’s note: The above is a translation of an authoritative German translation of the passage with a few words from the original Czech text. *This appears to refer to fees that Jews had to pay in order to have their pledges registered.]
