“Circular” issued by Bishop Johann Georg II [Prince-Bishopric of Bamberg; Present-day Germany]: “[…] 72) if the Jews do not honor or revere the holy sacrament or the priest, they are to be turned over to the secular authorities […] 77) Christians and Jews are not to consort with each other […] or go drinking/pubbing together (‘kneipen’)*. […]” [Researcher’s note: *The German word “kneipen” is used here as a verb and refers to drinking at a pub or going drinking from pub to pub.]
