Pope Paul V Papal Bull, 17th century

 Item — Frame: 1

Scope and Contents

From the Collection: This Papal Bull is a decree from Pope Paul V dating from the early 17th century. Pope Paul V was Pope from 1605 until his death in 1621. He is best known for persecuting Galileo for his defense of the heliocentric theory of Copernicus. He also canonized St. Charles Boromeo, Frances of Rome and Albert de Louvain and beatified Ignatius Loyola, Philip Neri, Teresa of Avila and Francis Xavier. This Papal Bull is written in an ornate script that is difficult to translate, so we do not yet have any information on the content of the decree. Therefore, the subject matter of the decree is presently unknown.
