it hasn't even been an hour 

and already a coworker has been asking me for details on how a new Pope gets elected. So i'm going to collect a few links.

  • Catholic-Pages.com: How is the Pope elected?
  • Slightly more detailed recap at PopeChart.com
  • A similar rundown from Time Magazine
  • Gotta include wikipedia's take on this
  • Universi Dominici Gregis: On the Vacancy of the Apostolic See and the Election of the Roman Pontiff (official document from 1996)
  • Timeline of the popes
  • How the Papacy works, from howstuffworks.com
