Summorum Pontificum (2007), Explanatory Note (2007), Universae Ecclesiae (2011)

I wanted to put all three of these documents together on this blog.

Summorum Pontificum – issued in 2007, and widely seen as freeing the Traditional (Tridentine) Latin Mass.  As some who is tracking Latin Masses, I can verify that there is definitely a growth in Traditional Latin Masses after this document was published. 

Letter Accompanying Summorum Pontificum – the “explanatory note” for Summorum Pontificum, issued at the same time

Universae Ecclesiae – issued in 2011, instruction on the application of Summorum Pontificum

This is much of a set of book marks for me as anything, as I have been answering some questions recently on these documents.
