Note: for translations of papal documents after this point, see this site. If you can read more than one language, this site is useful because it lists more papal documents, with links to where you can read them in Latin (and occasionally other languages). Most of these links on this page are to the Epistolae website, which is basically dedicated to translating ancient documents written by or to women, so there is a heavy trend on this page toward writings toward women. BTW I’d love to add to this; do any of you know where there are other papal writings not included on papalencyclicals.net?
