Camerlengo of the Sacred College of Cardinals

Not to be confused with the post of Camerlengo of the Holy Roman Church.
The Camerlengo (Italian: "Chamberlain") of the Sacred College of Cardinals was the treasurer of that body. He administered all fees and revenues belonging to the College, celebrated the requiem Mass for a deceased cardinal, and was charged with the registry of the Acta Consistoralia. Pope Eugenius III created that post in 1150. It existed until 1995.
