What happens after Benedict’s death?

Pope Emeritus Benedict is apparently dying. What happens after his death is unclear. There is a specific procedure in the Vatican when a pope dies. Benedict resigned as pontiff in 2013.


Pope Benedict is very ill. Apparently the 95-year-old is dying.

The Vatican regulates in detail what to do when a pope dies. However, almost all regulations – such as the conclave to elect a new Catholic leader – relate to the death of an incumbent pope. Like the screenplay for the death of the emeritus pontiff Benedict XVI. (95) might look like is unclear. No wonder, after all, no pope resigned for more than 700 years.

Benedict, who comes from Bavaria, resigned from the office of Pope in February 2013 in a highly unusual step for health reasons. With his resignation, communicated in Latin, he wrote church history: Benedict was the first pope since 1415 to give up the office of head of the Catholic Church.
