Law “Against the Freedom of the Jews” issued by the Roman Emperor Karl V. [Germany]: “We Karl the Fifth, Roman Emperor by the Grace of God, command, that from now on any Jewess or Jew won’t be allowed to lend any money or take any goods as a pledge from the citizens of the city of Kaufbeuren and its tax district. If this should happen anyway, we command that such transactions shall be invalid and void.”
