With the abdication of Joseph Ratzinger on February 11 of this year, and Peter Hans Kolvenbach's (the previous Superior General of the Jesusits) resignation in Janurary of 2008; There are now 4.
Joseph Ratzinger is Pope Emeritus in Rome, and Peter Han Kolvenbach is retired (in Lebanon). That equals 2 White Popes and 2 Black Popes, at once in totality.
