In the first year of his papacy, Gregory IX issued three similar documents, all entitled Magna sicut dicitur. The first of these was sent on July 28, 1227, to the Sisters of St. Damian in Milano, cf. Paul Maria Sevesi, "Il monastero delle Clarisse in S. Apollinare di Milano. Documenti sec. XIII-XVIII," AFH 17 (1924): 349-350. It was repeated and sent again on August 1, 1227, to the Sisters of St. Damian in Spello, cf. Registra Pontificum Romanorum inde ab A. post Christus Natum MCXCVIII ad A. MCCCIV. Vol. I. Edited by August Potthast (Berlin, n.p., 1873), 691/7987.
