Rescript, issued by the Danish Chancellery to the Bishop of Zealand and the Court Preacher [Present-day Denmark]: “Jews who want to be instructed in the Christian religion, must declare to the priest what craft they will learn, or in what factory they will work. Any priests who have come across such a Jew, who is beginning to be taught to convert to the Christian faith must, in order to prevent such people from wandering around the country to pray, declare which profession or craft that individual will learn, or in which of the manufactures here he plans to work, in order to earn his living.”
