AT THIS PRESENT TIME
17 May 1512
[The quasi-council of
Pisa is condemned, and everything done at it is declared null and void. THIS PRESENT DAY Lateran council and whatever has been rightly done at it are confirmed]
Servant of the servants of God, with the approval of the sacred council, for an everlasting record. We intend, with the help of the most High, to proceed with the holding of this sacred council which has now begun for the praise of God, the peace of the whole church, the union of the faithful the overthrow of heresies and schisms, the reform of morals, and the campaign against the dangerous enemies of the faith, so that the mouths of all schismatics and enemies of peace, those howling dogs, may be silenced and Christians may be able to keep themselves unstained from such pernicious and poisonous contagion.
