“Jewish Privilege” issued by Holy Roman Emperor Carl V [Holy Roman Empire; Present-day Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, France, Spain etc.]: “[…Jews] may neither have immobile goods (real estate), nor pursue or have any other stately jobs, positions, and doings with the Christians.” [Researcher’s note: While Carl’s edict renews the privileges given to Jews and afford them various rights and protection via this privilege, the above excerpt reaffirms certain restrictions according to this source.]
