Catalogue Note

In the present document, Hermann de Leye, canon of the collegiate church of St. Beatusberg (later, a Carthusian charterhouse) outside the walls of Koblenz, grants to the dean and chapter of the church of St. Florian, Koblenz, the “arca” of Johann de Binecke, the late provost of the latter church, situated at the Jews’ Gate next to the provost’s court. The first documentation of the Jews’ Gate in Koblenz comes from 1282; during the period covered by this charter, Jews worked as moneylenders to the city council, the archbishop of Trier, and the local nobility.
