On Deposing Popes: A Historical Review

On Deposing Popes: A Historical Review


The growing discontent toward Pope Francis from all quarters has led to increasing whispers of a question unheard in centuries: “Is it possible to depose the pope?”

This is not an easy question to answer. If you look at the history of what the Church has taught on this subject as well as the actual record of possible papal depositions, you get a confusing set of often conflicting opinions, actions, and teachings.

I decided to examine that history in more detail in this free booklet. I believe this is a valuable resource for Catholics as we grapple with difficult questions facing us today.
