Topic: Letter of The Law / Dumb Laws from History.

In The Middle Ages/Renaissance under the “Sumptuary Laws” it was illegal for a peasant to wear the clothes associated with royalty,and in Circa 1337 it was illegal to associate with the Irish,or adopt their customs or way of life,and in 1492 it was illegal for Jews to live in spain a law that wasn’t repealed until the 1920’s and supposedly it was illegal to suggest that the earth rotated around the sun,and until Lawerance VS. Texas there was no privacy.

Please note that all the laws were actually researched by me.

Feel free to add.

This frequently meant preventing commoners from imitating the appearance of aristocrats, and sometimes also to stigmatize disfavored groups. In the Late Middle Ages sumptuary laws were instated as a way for the nobility to cap the conspicuous consumption of the up-and-coming bourgeoisie of medieval cities….
