Scrutiny is the name, also, of one of the three canonical modes of electing a pope in the Romish Church. It is the method almost invariably followed, and is thus managed: Blank schedules are supplied to each of the cardinals, who fills them up with his own name and that of the individual for whom he votes. If two thirds of the votes are not in favor of any one person, the cardinals proceed to a second vote by accessus (q.v.). See Gardner, Faiths of the World, s.v.; Walcott, Sac. Archaeol, s.v.
