Roman Jurist states Benedict's Resignation "Time Limit" of "28 February 2013, at 20:00 Hours" makes Resignation "Invalidated"
Antonio Socci in his book presents evidence that Pope Benedict XVI's
placing of a "time limit" on his resignation makes the resignation
invalid according to a Roman jurist."
Benedict's resignation stated:
"[F]rom 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant."
Roman jurist Emilio Papinano asserted:
"Legitimate acts do not admit of any time limit or condition... are completely invalidated by the addition of any condition."
