Sept. 1, 1584

Papal bull “Sancta Mater Ecclesia” issued by Gregory XIII [Present-day Italy]: “We command all the patriarchs, archbishops, bishops, and other prelates of the church…that there be sermons and lectures in which Jews may be exposed to our ancient scripture…in which the virtue of the Christian faith, the visit and embodiment of the son of God, his birth, life, miracles, suffering, death, burial, descent to hell, resurrection, ascension to heaven are explained to them…”
