When the "bell, book, and candle" ritual was still used by the Catholic church, was it used in all ferendae sententiae excommunications?
"A minor excommunication is contracted by mere participation with the excommunicate, and from such a simple Priest can absolve without a sworn statement;"
"Minor excommunicatio contrahitur per solam participationem cum excommunicato, et a tali potest simplex Sacerdos absolvere absque juratoria cautione;"
is one "which the Bishop promulgates by a reading a written decree"
"quam Pontifex per sententiam scriptam legendo promulgat"
is said when "the solemn excommunication for graver offenses must be done"
"solemnis excommunicatio pro gravioribus culpis fieri debet"
The anathema is the one that includes candles.
