Hi guys,

  • Where can I get books on indulgences and a list of Church indulgences?

Thank you.

John replied:

Hi Patrick,

I don't know about books, but Scott Hahn has a CD whimsically entitled Indulge Yourself.

I have not heard this particular series, but I can tell you from listening to many other of his works, that he is very good. I would imagine his explanation of indulgences would be just as good, if not better, than his previous works.

Also check out these links from Jim Akin's site:

I hope this helps,

Eric replied:

Hi Patrick,


There is also the Handbook of Indulgences <Enchiridion Indulgentiarum> but I can't find that in English on the Vatican web site.

That's the definitive book that lists all the indulgences.
