Crimen sollicitationis

Crimen sollicitationis (Latin: crime of solicitation) is the title of a 1962 document ("Instruction") of the Holy Office codifying procedures to be followed in cases of priests or bishops of the Catholic Church accused of having used the sacrament of Penance to make sexual advances to penitents.[2][3] It repeated, with additions, the contents of an identically named instruction issued in 1922 by the same office.[2][4]



The word diocese (/ˈdaɪəsɪs, -siːs, -siːz/) is derived from the Greek term dioikesis (διοίκησις) meaning 'administration'. Today, when used in an ecclesiastical sense, it refers to the ecclesiastical district under the jurisdiction of a bishop.

Vicar General of the diocese
As vicar of the bishop, the vicar general exercises the bishop's ordinary executive power over the entire diocese and, thus, is the highest official in a diocese or other particular church after the diocesan bishop or his equivalent in canon law.

Chancellor of the diocese

The Chancellor is generally one of four chief dignitaries in the cathedral chapter, the others being the Dean, the Precentor and the Treasurer. In the Roman Catholic Church a chancellor is the chief record-keeper of a diocese or eparchy or their equivalent.
