Bull

An official letter bearing a lead seal, or bulla (plural: bullae). Usually attributed to popes, but also issued by heads of religious orders and royalty. A collection of bulls may be called a bullarium.

One of the more famous bulls of the Middle Ages is the fourteenth-century Golden Bull (1356) of Emperor Charles IV.
