Is there a good book on how the papal conclave would work?


#1

Is there a good book, either online of in print, that could give me the mechanics of how the conclave would work?

I’d be looking for something that could eplain the voting processes, and why certain things are done at certain times, the role of the camerlengo, etc.

Many thanks.
