Welcome!  BishopAccountability.org is the largest public library of information on the Catholic clergy abuse crisis.  We are a digital collection of documents, survivor witness, investigative reports, and media coverage.  We also do basic research on abuser histories and church management, and we maintain definitive databases of persons accused in the United States, Argentina, Chile, and Ireland, with other databases in development.

We are not an advocacy organization, and we take no position on possible remedies for the crisis.  We are a library open to everyone looking to understand the problem of clergy abuse of children.

The materials we have collected also provide insight into child protection generally and Catholic history beyond the abuse crisis, and they comprise a unique case study of institutional response to misconduct and demands for change.

Please see our note about plans for 2024, this homepage, the site redesign, and some legacy content.
