Citation sources in papal documents

Citations extracted from http://w2.vatican.va/content/vatican/en.html and http://www.papalencyclicals.net/. All data are in Excel. Contact me if you’d like a copy or if you’ve spotted an error!

These charts do not include Scriptural citations. All popes quoted Scripture in their documents; what is not consistent is how they handled those quotes. Some popes provided a citation at the end, and some simply included an in-text citation. As a result, comparing the exact citations will make it look as though certain popes or documents did not use any Scripture. To improve usefulness – that is, to more easily compare citations among papal documents – I have removed Scriptural citations from the final count.
