Summary

Official copy of an edict issued by Vincenzo Gonzaga, duke of Mantua, in 1594 renewing privileges and amnesties of the Jews of Mantua, who were allowed to work as bankers, merchants, and butchers. The contemporary edict is preceded by copies of 2 earlier renewals, the first issued by Guglielmo Gonzaga, Vincenzo's father and the previous duke, in Goito in 1587, and the second issued by Vincenzo in 1590. All 3 copies, perhaps written by a chancery scribe, are signed by ducal chancellor Matthaeus Gentilis.
