A judge in the southern Spanish city of Granada has charged 10 Roman Catholic priests and two Catholic lay workers with child sex abuse.
The 12 are suspected of abusing four teenage boys between 2004 and 2007, the most serious offences occurring in a house used by the priests.
Pope Francis telephoned one of the alleged victims, now 24, in November to offer his apologies.
The pontiff, who has pledged zero tolerance of child sex abuse, then ordered a Church investigation.
Several arrests were made in November but the suspects are now free on bail.
