Pope Innocent III confirms the earlier papal bull Sicut Judaeis non. Originally written in 1120 by Pope Calixtus II, it was intended to protect Jews from being assaulted by Crusaders moving across Europe.

This bull is reissued or reaffirmed by several popes over the centuries. The fact that it needs to be repeated on a regular basis is a strong indication that the instructions in the bull aren't being followed.
