Pope Honorius III Bans Jews From Public Office

Pope Honorius III

Pope Honorius III issues the papal bull Ad nostram Noveritis audientiam banning Jews from any public offices and requiring them to wear distinctive badges while out in public.

These sorts of requirements are common throughout the Middle Ages and will be copied very closely by the Nazi government in Germany in the 20th century.
