Rescript, issued by the Danish Chancellery to the Governor and the Bishop of Zealand [Present-day Denmark]: “A citizen and merchant of the Jewish nation in Kalundborg and his fiancée (a citizen’s daughter, some twenty years old, well above the age of pretense to be seduced by him to abandon her own, and assume the Jewish religion) may marry each other, notwithstanding he is not baptized, from what action he refrains for reasons which are important to his conscience, which the King will not compel; however, the children of this marriage, whether male or female, must be educated in the Christian Lutheran religion, which the local authority shall carefully enforce.”
