The Fourth Opinion – Commentary by Fr. Paul Kramer

Refer to this post and this post.

4) That a manifest heretic does not fall from the pontificate by himself ipso facto, but must be judged by the Church to fall from office.

“Opinion Number Four is heretical, because it attributes to the pope’s inferiors a power to judge him who is absolutely immune from judgment; and to act as final arbiter in a dispute on a matter of faith, which pertains exclusively to the full and supreme jurisdiction of the Roman Pontiff as the supreme judge of all disputes.”
