Assumption of Mary<quoted text>
The Decrees you noted affirm teachings and beliefs as doctrinal-they didn't change teachings or beliefs.
Vaticn I didn't change Church teachings.
You're being an idiot.
Not Taught in Scripture
Catholic authors readily admit that the Assumption is not explicitly taught in Scripture. In the biblical narrative, Mary is last mentioned in Acts 1 where she is found praying with the other disciples before Pentecost. After that, the Bible is silent about her life and death.
Not Taught by the Church Fathers
The Catholic Encyclopedia admits that the first genuine written references to the Assumption come from authors who lived in the sixth to the eight centuries:
If we consult genuine writings in the East, it is mentioned in the sermons of St. Andrew of Crete, St. John Damascene, St. Modestus of Jerusalem and others. In the West, St. Gregory of Tours (De gloria mart., I, iv) mentions it first.
St. Gregory lived in the sixth century, while St John Damascene belongs to the eight. Thus for several centuries in the early Church, there is no mention by the church fathers of the bodily assumption of Mary. Irenaeus, Jerome, Augustine, Ambrose and the others Church Fathers said nothing about it. Writing in 377 A.D., church father Epiphanius states that no-one knows Marys end.
The belief in the corporeal assumption of Mary is founded on the apocryphal treatise De Obitu S. Dominae, bearing the name of St. John, which belongs however to the fourth or fifth century. It is also found in the book De Transitu Virginis, falsely ascribed to St. Melito of Sardis, and in a spurious letter attributed to St. Denis the Areopagite(Catholic Encyclopaedia).
The first church author to speak on the assumption, Gregory of Tours, based his teaching on the Transitus, perhaps because he accepted it as genuine. However, in 459 A.D. Pope Gelasius issued a decree that officially condemned and rejected the Transitus along with several other heretical writings. Pope Hormisdas reaffirmed this decree in the sixth century. It is ironic that this heretical teaching was later promoted within the Catholic Church, until eventually it was proclaimed a dogma in the twentieth century.
(Again the dogma in the 12th century for the Assumption came from an exactly the same type of Bull and decree as the dogma of Inquisition in the 12th century, both Papal Bulls and decrees were considered doctrine because they were decreed by a Big Papal Bull, it is only today the Rome picks and choose that which is politically expedient)
So the decree Papal Bull which in form and style FOR the Assumption of Mary is exactly like the one Given by Innocent the 3rd for Inquisition literally contradicts Scripture Early Church fathers and the Decrees of early so called RCC popes in the 3 4 -5 centuries.
Both dogma's Contradict the following from RCC Catechism
"The apostles entrust the 'Sacred deposit' of the faith (the depositum fidei), contained in Sacred Scripture and Tradition, to the whole of the Church...[the Magisterium] teaches only what has been handed on to it...All that it proposes for belief as being divinely revealed is drawn from this single deposit of faith" (, 84-86).
Yes RCC doctrine has change on the Inquisition and on the Assumption of Mary the evidence is definitive and overwhelming.
Yes Rome has also made dogma torture summary execution and confiscation of Property to convert non believers and to make heretics recant and it was affirmed by 42 popes as dogma,normative church practice
There are so many more examples that can be given but one is enough to rightfully and justly declare the RCC is not the one true church nor the sole deposit of faith it is a LIE
