“Decree” issued by the Prince-Bishopric [Prince-Bishopric of Bamberg; Present-day Germany]: “[…] 1) [Jews] are permitted to trade and peddle on Sundays and holy-days after 11 a.m.; 3) [they may also trade] with fat & lean cattle, so-long the [local] butchers have the right of way [to make the purchase first/pre-sale] the same goes for tallow […] 4) […] this is equally true for dehydrated fruit and hops; however, the local citizens and trading people have the right of way; 5) The trade with wool is permitted to Jews; however, the fabric-weavers have the right of way to make the purchase first. 6) The trade with barley is permitted to Jews, however, the coopers have half a day to pre-purchase [the items first]. 7) […] whatever the Christians cannot or do not wish to keep in stock or to trade with, especially on the countryside, that shall be allowed to Jews.
