The Papal Decree is to be humidified in a climate chamber to have it relaxed for mounting onto a custom made reversed thread mount.
The reversed thread mount holds the parchment in mildly tensioned. The linen threads on the back of the frame counteract to the dimensional fluctuations of parchment resulting from changes in relative humidity. With the humidity increasing, the parchment expands but the linen threads contract.

The parchment is mounted on the frame with linen threads

The threads converge on the centre on the back of the mount


Papal decree and its copy will have separate custom made frames with mats.
