Religious Leader Sexual Abuse and Institutional Clericalism
A Resources Bibliography
History, Context, Analysis
Collator’s Introductory Note
I built this bibliography around the speeches, articles, and books written by Dominican priest and canon lawyer Father Thomas P. Doylei – only then supplementing his work with the work of others. If a reader begins by reading one or more of Doyle’s articles or books, then he or she is prepared to read more broadly – seeking to contextualize and comprehend the precise nature of the clergy sexual abuse crisis which is present in nearly all Christian denominations. The more widely one reads, the more a nuanced understanding develops – an understanding of clergy sexual violation that crosses denominational lines or even inter-religious lines. Because of the emerging world-wide internet research community, I have included many items which can be located on the internet. It is hoped that this bibliography can be helpful to undergraduate and graduate students as well as to denominational leaders and committed lay individuals as they continue to study these complex socio-religious realities. Each article, book, or speech can serve as a doorway to understanding these troubling spiritual, psychological, religious, and social issues. However, none, standing alone, can provide complex understanding.
