Here is the text of the Regnans in Excelsis, the papal bull, which was then published and copied in the months following:
“The Damnation and Excommunication of Elizabeth Queen of England and her Adherents, with an Addition of other punishments 
Pius Bishop, Servant to God’s Servants, for a perpetual memorial of the matter.
