we lay the following injunction on every patriarch, archbishop, and bishop,
on the prelates of patriarchal, metropolitan, cathedral and collegiate churches,
and on the religious of every order, wherever they may be stationed:
that in the strength of their vow of obedience
and on pain of the sentence of excommunication,
they shall publicly announce that this Martinus Lutherus and the rest are
excommunicate, accursed, condemned, heretics,
deprived of possessions and incapable of owning them,
and so listed in the enforcement of these words.
three days shall be given,
then the banner of the cross shall be raised and the bells rung.
the faithful Christians, one and all, shall be enjoined strictly to shun these men.
