“Ordinance” issued by the City Council of Chomutov Regarding Craftsmen and Jews [Present-day Czech Republic; Part of the Teutonic Order]: “[…] it is prohibited for master tanners and furriers to purchase hides and fur from Jews in their homes […] and to do business with them in violation of the ordinances (‘privileges’) of the [City] Council, as the purchasing of leather from them shall be completely abolished and ceased henceforth. In case, however, a craftsman is found to have violated this [ordinance] and has been found to have purchased from Jews in their homes […] these criminals and transgressors are to lose their license [to practice their craft] for one whole year.”
