Recently, I came across an instance where a was trying to make hay with the papal bull ExsurgeDomine, and I thought the case might be instructive for seeing the delicacy with which such matters have to be treated.
ExsurgeDomine (which takes its name from the first two Latin words of the documents opening sentence: "Arise, Lord, and judge your own cause") was the 1520 papal bull rejecting forty-one propositions from Martin Luthers writings.
Because we can't know that, ExsurgeDomine does not infallibly define the theological status of this proposition or the others that it treats, meaning that it cannot be used to attack the doctrine of papal infallibility.
The Latin title, ExsurgeDomine is translated into English as Arise, O Lord.
While the bull did not directly condemn all the points of Luther's doctrines, it did specifically demand that Luther retract 41 of his 95 theses as well as other specified errors within sixty days of its publication in neighbouring regions to Saxony.
The Vatican's copy of ExsurgeDomine is still extant in the Vatican Library.
