((Trial of Antonio di Arezzo: Innocent))
The current evidence overwhelmingly shows that Antonio is innocent. I believe cardinal Modena is just jealous of our succes.
Jealous of you success? I have been a Archbishiop since my 20s, a missionary, steward, heir of the small D'Este fortune, patron of the arts, founder of the first zoo in Europe, funder of Lubecker, appointed Cardinal, Primate of all Sardinian Bishops, given Vice-Chancellorship (the highest rank in the Vatican other than Pope), and awarded the Royal Order of Light.
I do this not out of jealously or greed; I gain nothing from this that I don't already have. I want to bust out some of the corrupt practices that are fast becoming the status quo in Aragon. If the council doesn't find him guilty of treason, at least investigate what Sastre and I have uncovered in terms of the Seville bribes.
If his highness doesn't require my services as chaplain after the trial, I will return to Rome and continue to serve Aragon there. I will not stop trying to fight corruption and though I am weak in body, I am not weak in mind and spirit.
May God's light shine through the council's actions and long live Ferran III!
