Thanks for the clipping Mag...
I wonder if that sect was aligned with Eliphaz Levi or not...

Not really Howard

I'm sure that is connected to what is known as the Taxil hoax

A guy called Leo Taxil had loads of similar stories to discredit the Freemasons, and revealed in 1897 IIRC that it was all a hoax

AE Waite wrote a book in 1896 demolishing the hoax IIRC - actually called "Devil worshipping in France"

I think this is on the forums already
