What did Charlemagne's Sunday law of 800 require?


"We decree . . . that servile works should not be done on the Lord's day, . . . that is, that neither should men
do field work, either in cultivating the vineyards or by ploughing in the fields, by cutting or drying hay, or
by placing a fence, or by making clearings in the woods or felling trees or working on stones or
constructing houses or working in the garden; neither should they come together to decide public matters
nor be engaged in the hunt. . . . Women may not do any textile work nor cut out clothes nor sew nor make
garments. . . . But let them come together from all sides to church to the solemnities of the mass, and let
them praise God for all things which He does for us on that day. "-"Historical Chronicles of Germany,"
Sec. 2, Vol. 1, 22 General Admonition, 789, M. Martio 23, page 61, par. 81.
