“Parliament Decision” issued the General Assembly/Parliament of Olomouc [Present-day Czech Republic; Kingdom of Bohemia]: “[…] all Jews may not take more than one gulden per 10 loaned gulden in interest [… which] are to be submitted semi-annually. […] If a Jew makes a loan on a pledged item, it must be first reported to and registered with the bailiff or the aldermen. If a Jew accepts a pledge, he must return it or compensate its [truthful] owner without argument. Jews may not live in villages but only in towns and cities.” [Researcher’s note: The above is a translation of a German summary of the original Czech text both of which can be found in the cited source.]
