Until recently, what happened to the historical artifacts remained a mystery. But Vatican officials have now confirmed that the documents were stolen, and that they had just received ransom demands.

The Italian publication Il Messaggero reported that a former Vatican employee contacted a cardinal and demanded about 100,000 Euros for the documents' return. A Vatican spokesman said the cardinal declined.
