03: The Syllabus of Modernist Errors condemned by Pope Saint Pius X

The following is the full text of the decree Lamentabili Sane issued on July 3, 1907, by the Holy Office on behalf of the then-reigning Pope, Pius X. It was followed by the Oath Against Modernism and the landmark enyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis of the same Pope. Pius X (1903-1914) is the only Pope in recent times who was declared a saint and whose body remained incorrupt after his death.
