During the early years of the Christian persecutions when people were given serious penances which were considered to be almost impossible to complete, a custom arose whereby a Christian could ask a condemned Christian to take on the sinners guilt as part of the martyr's suffering and death. When the martyr accepted the burthen the repentant sinner would bring a note signed by the martyr and this note was presented to the bishop and he, on behalf of the condemned martyr would release the sinner from the heavy penance. This was the origin of what has become known as Indulgences or as these were originally known; letters of Christian love.
