Other than the period in history known as the western schism (1378-1407), has the Catholic Church ever had two ex-popes still living? I ask because of speculation that the Holy Father, Pope Francis, may follow in the footsteps of his predecessor by resigning. Because the papacy is more than just an office but rather, a throne, one would call it abdication.
