Universi Dominici Gregis
For those who are interested in what exactly is going on behind closed doors at the Vatican with regard to the upcoming Conclave (set to begin Monday April 18) this link will take you to the document that is literally governing the Cardinals' every move in this matter. It's a Papal encyclical entitled "Universi Dominici Gregis," and details John Paul II's desires for the way such things as his own funeral and the Conclave are to be handled. Other Papal writings can be found at Papal Documents which is part of the official Vatican site.
