“Ordinance” issued by the Prince-Bishopric [Prince-Bishopric of Bamberg; Present-day Germany]: “[…] foreign Jews are prohibited from trading (engaging in any kind of trade) inside of the Stift* […] and no citizen may trade prohibited goods with a local Jew [covertly/illegally] in order to make a profit. […] Jews are not permitted to peddle on Sundays and holy-days [… or] place their stand next to that of a Christian at fairs.” [Researcher’s note: *A Stift was an independent territory in the Holy Roman Empire.]
