The truth of the Church, as the Bollandists presented it, was being affirmed. There should be no surprise, therefore, that in 1775, in the bull Fra le pastorali sollecitudini, Pope Pius VI cancelled his predecessor Clement XIV's, easements, perhaps influenced by the publication in Rome of 'Ristretto de la vita e martirio di San Simone fanciulli de Trento' whose author, Francisco Rovira Bonet, was rector of the Casa dei cathecumenti. Pointedly, Pius VI issued his edict at the Holy Office, the office whose jurisdiction over the Jews Clement XIV had transferred back to it's original holder, the Roman Vicar. The full significance of these moves is perceived when noting in 1775, Pius VI also attacked the writings of Illuminati. Repressing Jews and fighting the Enlightenment went hand in hand. It was no accident that in 1794, the same Rovira Bonet wrote "L'Armatura dei forti", a manifesto against unbelievers and revolutionaries, but also against Muslims and Jews, as well as Jansenists and Freemasons.
