Compromise, Election by

is one of the modes of electing the pope. When the cardinals fail to agree upon any one candidate, they sometimes refer the matter to a committee of their own number by way of compromise, binding themselves to nominate as pope the person on whom the arbiters shall fix. (See POPE).
