III
THE INDULGENCE AS AN EXPEDIENT OF
PAPAL FINANCE

[No. 3] The Bull Liquet omnibus of Julius II ( Magnum Bullarium Romanum, i. 502, Luxembergi, 1727), dated 11 January 1510, is that which seven years later excited Luther's revolt. In the commission now directed to Francesco Zeno no mention is made of repentance and confession as a condition for gaining the indulgence, but only of payment. For an extra sum the sinner may choose his own confessor; and if he impose a 'salutary penance', it is to consist of a further contribution to the fabric of St. Peter's. 'The whole document is evidently drawn with the purpose of enabling the pardoners to represent it as an indulgence a culpa et a poena' (Lea, op. cit. iii. 75): and, as it offers everything for sale, it illustrates the important place which indulgences had now taken among the ordinary financial expedients of the Papacy.

§ 1. Unde nos qui licet imparibus meritis eiusdem coelorum clavigeri successores sumus, et eius loco in sancta Dei ecclesia residemus, considerantes quod diffusis per orbem terrarum ecclesiis ex iniuncto nobis a Deo Apostolatus officio providere teneamur, ut ecclesiae ipsae quae domus Dei sunt in suis structuris et aedificiis non solum conserventur sed etiam, si opus fuerit, reparentur, circa tamen Basilicam de Urbe ipsius Petri principis Apostolorum maiorem curam et diligentiam adhibere nos convenit, ut sicut ipse beatus Petrus ab ipso Salvatore nostro princeps Apostolorum est constitutus, ita etiam ipsius Basilica quae non parva reparatione indiget inter caeteras Urbis et orbis ecclesias, congruentibus ac etiam necessariis aedificiis reaedificetur, construatur et amplietur, ac reaedificata, constructa, et ampliata conservetur.

§ 2. Et cum nuper ex praemissis et certis aliis rationalibus causis, iuxta nostri cordis desiderium ad dictae Basilicae restaurationem manus operarias apposuissemus, cognoscentes
