Pope Clement VI's bull Unigenitus ("Unbegotten") declares that the accumulated merit of the Catholic Church, won by Christ and the Saints, can be drawn upon by the faithful through something known as Indulgences.

This doctrine will be challenged by Martin Luther and becomes an important factor in causing the Protestant Reformation.
