Pope Pius V, whose pontificate lasted from 1566 to 1572, imposed the liturgical rite of Rome on the Latin Church, in response to the confusion that preceded the Protestant Reformation. A few other Western rites already hundreds of years old were allowed to remain active. In succeeding centuries, a few additional rites or observances have been created or added for the Western Church. For the most part, Roman Catholics participate in Roman-rite liturgy, codified by the Missale Romanum, established at the Council of Trent and updated by Pope John Paul II, in response to the Second Vatican Council (1962-65).
I was just curious if an Eastern Catholic Hierarch was still open to election to Pope. If this is possible what would be the ramifications for the church? would the rite the Vatican use be eastern? or would the hierarch have to change the rite he celebrates?
The book and film "The Shoes of the Fisherman" was based on this premise:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shoes_of_the_Fisherman#Plot
