A book about Cardinal George Pell is being pulled from shelves in Victoria after he was charged with multiple historical sex offences.

Melbourne University Press confirmed it was removing ABC journalist Louise Milligan's book from sale after Victoria Police charged Cardinal Pell on summons on Thursday.

"MUP is taking all reasonable measures to withdraw Cardinal: the rise and fall of George Pell by Louise Milligan from sale in Victoria now that Cardinal Pell has been charged," a spokeswoman told AAP.

The book was released on May 15 and contained allegations about sexual assaults in Ballarat between 1976 and 1980 and in East Melbourne between 1996 and 2001.

Cardinal Pell's Rome office labelled the book "an exercise in character assassination".
