A report by Santa Clara theology professors explores the why behind sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.

A new report by two Santa Clara theology professors explores how and why sexual abuse by clergy members endured in the Catholic Church.

Beyond ‘Bad Apples’ by Julie Hanlon Rubio and Paul Schutz was funded by a grant from an initiative advancing research from Jesuit educational institutions that confronts the causes and legacy of sexual abuse.

Through interviews with 300 priests, nuns, and laypeople, the SCU study examines clericalism—or the power structure that grants priests excessive authority—and suggests strategies for change.
