XXV. GLORIOUS KING FLAVIUS ERVIG
Let no judge presume to investigate the offences of the perfidious without the knowledge of priests
No judge shall decide a case involving the transgressions of the perfidious Jews unless a priest is present, lest, by the acceptance of a bribe, the Holy Faith of the Church be stained by avarice; but if, as is frequently the case, no priest is present, the judge is authorised to proceed without him. If, however, the bishop goes away from his see and travels whether near, or at a distance, he may leave a priest (ex sacerdotibus) to act in his stead, who will co-operate with the judge of the territory in the enforcement of these laws, without any remuneration whatever.
