Pope Innocent IV confirms the earlier papal bull Sicut Judaeis non. Originally issued by Pope Calixtus II in 1120, this important bull was designed to provide protection to Jews from assaults by Crusaders moving across Europe on their way to the Holy Lands.

Sicut Judaeis non is reissued or reaffirmed over the centuries by a number of different popes, strongly suggesting that the instructions aren't being followed and Jews are still being regularly attacked in the name of Christianity.
