At the behest of the guilds, Jews are expelled from Lübeck, Germany. Lübeck has historically been an especially antisemitic city with very harsh restrictions against Jews.

The guilds have been the biggest agitators for antisemitic restrictions, apparently in the fear that Jewish merchants would create too much competition for them.

In 1701 a single Jew will be allowed to legally live in Lübeck, but only in exchange for a hefty yearly payment.
