  • Title: Miracoli con il signum: due casi a confronto, Rosa da Viterbo e Simonino da Trento [Devotion to Rose of Viterbo was recorded immediatly after her death in 1251. Her cult benefited from pilgrim traffic through Viterbo to Rome, as well as local devotion. Notaries recorded miracles that supported the cause for Rose's canonization. Similarly, when the body of Simon of Trent, a boy thought murdered by Jews, was found in 1475, notarized documents were prepared to support a less successful campaign for canonization. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
