This article provides a multi-levelled framework of analysis in relation to the abuse of children by Catholic Church personnel. A description is provided at three levels or tiers of conceptualisation: macro, meso and micro. The first of these refers to global and trans-historical factors relevant to understanding abuse in the Church. The meso level refers to the emergence of this recent crisis inside particular nations. At the micro level, consideration is given to the particular personal aspects of Catholic-setting abuse for perpetrators and victims to distinguish it from similar forms of offending that lie conceptually between intra-familial and stranger predation.
