Published on May 1, 2011.
The weird lie about a female pope has lasted for centuries, and still gets trotted out today by anti-Catholic writers. In two short articles J P Kirsch and Father Bertrand L Conway describe the various forms of this nonsense tale, summarize the theories on how it started, and explain the simple reasons why it didn't happen and couldn't have happened.
