The period of misunderstandings
During the time when don Antonio was busy writing books, which the Pope had pointed out as his special vocation, he had to face up to a period of difficult trials and misunderstandings, which completely marked the last period of his life. Firstly two little books were placed on the Index. This resulted in a first process which concluded with a verdict of acquittal. Subsequently new accusations brought with them a true and real ant-rosminian campaign which led Pius IX to order the examination of all his works; this lasted for a good four years. A sentence of full acquittal of Rosminian teaching was issued in March 1854, with a veto on renewing further accusations.
