Who Is Eligible To Pope & Who Can Elect The New Pope — My Updated Chart.
This was a chart that I originally compiled in 2009.
It has appeared in many of my pope books and is well known among the cognoscenti.
I use it all the time!
I was studying it again, this morning, looking at what happened in 1059, when it occurred to I that I could — & should — update it.
None of the data has changed.
Nothing has changed in this front in over 650-years.
Just the presentation. SMILE.
I hope it is clearer & even more self-explanatory. I try.
