Two nuns submitted virginity tests in a bid to clear a former Catholic priest who was accused of sexual abuse, it has been reported.
Feliciano Miguel Rosendo was arrested in December 2014 over allegations he forced Sisters to take part in orgies and boasted that his semen 'contained the body of Christ'.
Rosendo led the Mandate and Order of Saint Michael Archangel, whose choir sang for Pope Benedict when he visited Madrid in 2011.

He was later expelled from the Roman Catholic diocese for 'inappropriate behaviour'.
While many of the sect's 400 followers left after his expulsion, a core group of supporters stayed and continue to protest his innocence.
Rosendo was arrested after a member claimed he told her 'his semen contained the body of Christ and this way he would purify her', it was reported by The Local which cited Spanish daily El Mundo.
One nun described how two other Sisters would 'sleep with Rosendo on alternate days' and claimed the priest forced the women to take part in orgies.

In attempt to prove his innocence, the Sisters presented evidence to a court in the Galician town of Tui to prove they had never had sex.
A report carried out by experts from Madridís Official College of Physicians stated that experts had conducted physical tests to show the two women had never had any 'sexual relations'.
Rosendoís lawyer, Maria Teresa Quintana-Drake, said she would use tests to prove her client was innocent.
She said: 'There are lost of witnesses but they have no proof.
