Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  CONCLAVE. An assembly of cardinals for the purpose of electing a pope; the 
  place where the assembly is held is also called a conclave. It derives this 
  name from the fact that all the windows and doors are looked, with the 
  exception of a single panel, which admits a gloomy light.
