“Synod” issued by Bishop of Bamberg Henry/Heinrich III [Prince-Bishopric of Bamberg; Present-day Germany]: “[…] Jews are not to have/let go of their Christians servants […] Christians maids and wet nurses are to face excommunication [from the church] if they are found to be working for Jews* […] Jews are prohibited from being seen on the street or peeking through doors and windows on Good Friday or [they’ll] be fined 1 Mark silver. […] When the sacrament passes by the houses of Jews, they are to step away from all doors and windows and close them. […] Jews may not discuss the Catholic faith with the common man […] or to [mis]lead anyone to the Jewish faith [..] or perform circumcisions on a non-Jews. […] Jewish women and children who are inclined towards the Christians faith may not be prevented from converting. […] They (Jews) are not to visit Christians who are ill or to administer any medication. […]” [Researcher’s note: *In 1422, it was decided that Christians who ran away from their position as servants to Jews could not legally lose their wages which they had earned up to that point.]
