Encyclicals of the Catholic Church
This category lists works related to official Papal declarations hosted on Wikisource.


An encyclical is a type of letter written by a Pope to a particular audience of Bishops. Apostolic Letters, Apostolic Constitutions, Instructions, Letters given motu proprio, and other bulls are deliberately excluded from this list. Before Leo XIII there is no definitive listing of encyclicals, and before Benedict XIV there is little distinction made between encyclicals and other papal writings.
