Pope Paul III issues the papal bull Cupientes judaeos, guaranteeing property rights for Jewish converts to Christianity, but forbidding them from having any contact with Jews or other converts. Converting Jews has always been an important goal of the Catholic Church.

Often, the primary reason given for instructing Christians not to molest the Jews is precisely so that it will be easier to convert them to Christianity.
