ⓘ Sedeprivationism

Sedeprivationism is a term coined by William J. Morgan, an English layman and a sedevacantist apologist. The word sedeprivationism is an amalgamation of two words, sede and deprivation, into a single descriptive term. Individuals or groups who follow the sedeprivationist school of thought, such as the Istituto Mater Boni Consilii and others, hold that while the current occupant of the papacy is a duly elected pope, unless he recants the changes brought by Vatican II, he lacks authority to either teach or govern.
