The following example is taken from the University of Notre Dame Australia's Referencing Guide for Chicago Footnotes:

First footnote citation 

5. John Paul II, Evangelium vitae, Encyclical Letter, Vatican Website, March 25, 1995,, sec. 97.

Second and subsequent footnote citations 

9. John Paul II, Evangelium vitae, 34.


John Paul II.  Evangelium vitae.  Encyclical Letter.  Vatican Website.  March 25, 1995.

Please refer to the UNDA Referencing Guide for Chicago Footnotes (which is the style used by the School of Philosophy & Theology), under Religious & Classical Works > Footnote & Bibliography examples > Papal Documents.
