Did JP2 excommunicate "ALL" SSPX priests at one point?

Not only is the very idea of the Code of Canon Law invalidating the actions of a pope (the ultimate judge of that law) logically ridiculous, but the specific arguments for why it was true in this case fail to convince on any objective level.

In any case, I'd say the SSPX lost their chance to even make that argument when they asked for and accepted the lifting of the excommunications.

Were the excommunications "lifted" though? IIRC the Pope used different terminology that tended towards them not being formally excommunicated in the first place. I'm not about to look it up but maybe someone else knows offhand.
