The Election of the Pope

 
9781860820113: The Election of the Pope

This small, easy to read and refer to, soft-back book is The definitive work on electing a Pope. It is a fascinating, nuts and bolts account of how a pope is elected. From Linus to John Paul II, it has always been an event of special, global importance. This is the new revised and updated edition which explains the new norms promulgated by John Paul II in 1996 and combines the technical with the historical and spiritual elements of the process to produce a unique and highly informative summary. No one is better equipped to explain the election method and history of papal elections than Mgr Charles Burns. A Scot of tremendous intellect, he devoted most of his priestly life to the work of the Vatican Secret Archives, a service from which he retired after 35 years. In 1998 he received the OBE from the Queen, and is now ecclesiastical advisor to the British Embassy to the Holy Monsignor Burns teaches at the Papal Ecclesiastical Academy in Rome.
