German SIG #Germany "Judenfreiheit" documents - mid 16th century? #germany

I am trying to translate the chapters in Heinrich Sinz's book about the
history of Ichenhausen (1926, 28) which deal with the history of the Jews in
this place.

My German is pretty primitive! Has anyone ever made a translation of this?

Kaiser Karl V seems to have authorised the issuing of "Judenfreiheit"
documents. These are dated in the mid 16th century (1540-1560 ish). Was
their purpose to limit the number of Jews in a particular place...or what?
