The Vatican has been sent a 1,200-page dossier compiled by a male escort identifying 40 actively gay priests and seminarians in Italy.

The file, containing WhatsApp chats and other evidence, was created by a self-proclaimed gay escort named as Francesco Mangiacapra.

He has told Italian media that he outed the priests because he couldn't stand their hypocrisy any longer.

The archdiocese of Naples says it has sent the Vatican a 1,200-page dossier compiled by a male escort identifying 40 actively gay priests and seminarians in Italy. 

The archdiocese of Naples says it has forwarded the dossier to the Vatican. In a statement on the diocesan website, Archbishop of Naples Cardinal Cresenzio Sepe said none of the identified priests worked in the city.

But he said he decided to pass on the file because 'there remains the gravity of the cases for which those who have erred must pay the price, and be helped to repent for the harm done.'

None of the 34 priests or six seminarians was accused of having sex with minors, Mangiacapra was quoted as saying in the diocesan statement.

'We're talking about sins, not crimes,' the escort was quoted as saying in the statement.

It's the latest sex scandal to convulse the Italian church and the Vatican.

Last month, a Vatican judge pleaded guilty in a Rome tribunal to having child porn on his computer after police were brought in when he allegedly tried to fondle an 18-year-old man. 

Monsignor Pietro Amenta was a judge on the Roman Rota, the Holy See tribunal that hears marriage annulment cases, as well as a consulter to various Vatican congregations. 

He resigned after the plea deal, the Vatican said.
