Acknowledgements of debt have long been used in the study of medieval Anglo-Jewish moneylending activities. Such studies have been primarily based upon a socio-economic approach. In contrast, this paper is based upon an analysis of the material, palaeographic, and linguistic features. It commences by charting the legislation which governed the production of acknowledgements, and the extent to which this was adhered to, before highlighting the aspects of the text which have previously been neglected but provide an important, additional, dimensions to the historiography.
