Sacred College, Dean of the

Additional Links

Successor of the archpriest, and to some extent the archdeacon. This position belongs to the Bishop of Ostia because of his immemorial right to bear the pallium at the consecration of a pope, to anoint the Roman Emperor, and to take first place after the pope at general councils. As president of the College of Cardinals he convokes the same, conducts its deliberations, and represents it abroad.
