Rome's Pontifical Gregorian University will host a Vatican-sponsored symposium on paedophilia next February.

The forum to help the world's Catholic bishops and the heads of religious orders deal with clerical sex abuse of minors will make extensive use of online methods, Religions News Service says citing the Italian news agency ANSA.

The symposium will reportedly feature a workshop led by the developers of Virtus, which its makers describe as a "state-of-the-art, web-based platform" that provides "best practices programs designed to help prevent wrongdoing and promote 'rightdoing' within religious organisations."

The product was developed by the National Catholic Risk Retention Group Inc., a US company that offers "cost-effective excess liability programs" to Catholic institutions in that country.
