Theodosius !Protection of Synagogues

It is sufficiently established that the sect of the Jews is prohibited by no law. We are therefore gravely disturbed by the interdiction imposed in some places on their assemblies. Your Sublime Magnitude [the Master of the Soldiers in the East] shall, upon reception of this order, repress with due severity the excess of those who presume to commit illegal acts under the name of the Christian religion and attempt to destroy and despoil synagogues.”
