Pope Clement IV issues the papal bull Turbato corde, equating conversion or relapse to Judaism with heresy and thus forbidding Christians from doing so.

According to Clement, the jurisdiction of "Inquisitors of heresy" (Dominican and Franciscan Inquisitors) will now include four new categories of persons: Jews who had been baptized into Christianity, Jews who help the former return from Christianity to Judaism, Christians who demonstrate any attraction to Judaism, and Jews who lure Christians to convert to Judaism.
