The records of this trial were originally kept in
the secret archive of the Citadel of St. Angelo and were then transferred to the Vatican, where they are available for examination. They were disclosed by Pope Benedict XIV. Also Pope Clement XIV as legal counsellor for the
Holy Office, before he became Pope, verified the murders of both St. Simon of Trent and St. Andreas of Rinn [remember St. Dominguito del Val, Mártir] as cases of ritual murder almost
300 years later, in 1770. The boy [Simon] who was tortured to death at Trent was officially canonized by Pope Sixtus V. The Holy Infant Martyr, St. Simon of Trent's feast, is always celebrated on March 24th.
