Die Zeit wrote that researchers weren't allowed to look at the original church files but had to provide questionnaires to the dioceses, which then provided the information.

Hahahaha. Brilliant! So this was pre-selected stuff? Everything that would actually have been a bombshell was left out?

Like info about ritual abuse, info about abuse by bishops, pedophile rings in the church etc.?

Or how do they justify the 'pre-selection'?

On a side note, even Snopes now confirms there are pedophile rings in the Catholic Church!

The testimonies of victims whose records were found to be "manipulated or destroyed" should be given special attention because, as you point out, those are likely to be the most egregious of crimes and/or committed by the highest-ranking perverts.
