“Order” issued by Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I [Present-day Austria]: “[…] Jews who have been expelled from Styria and Carinthia are to live in Marchegg. […] Christians are to permit them to live in their houses for quite (‘ziemlich’) an interest/fee. […]” [Researcher’s note: This law was issued by Maximilian on the urging of the Prelates, who had paid 38000 Pf. pennies for the expulsion.]
