“Prohibition Order” of Henry III (“Heinrich der Erlauchte”) [Margrave of Meissen; Present-day Germany]: “[…] it is prohibited to house/harbor a Jew [in Dresden], who is not one of the Jewish servant-staff of the court* (‘Hof’) so long as he does not have (is not provided with) a stamped permit slip from the governor […].” [Researcher’s note: *Court refers here to the seat of administration of a prince and/or a ruler in which he lived and from which he managed his domain.]
