More Information: The procession for the celebration of Corpus Cristi is one of the most important in Catholic countries and it attended with great celebrations. St Polten (Hippolytus) was the site by the end of the eighteenth century of the seat of the Austian bishop. "The first lodge of Freemasons, "Zu den drei Kanonen", was formed at Vienna in 1742; a lodge called "Zu den gekronten Sternen und zur Redlichkeit" was formed soon after at Prague. Joseph II, however, had no alliance with Freemasons. "I know little about their secrets", he said, "as I never had the curiosity to take part in their mummeries". Still, his words, "The Freemason societies increase and are now to be found in the smallest cities", show the rapid growth of the order. Although many of the representatives of the Church failed to meet the new tendencies with force and courage, the Prince-Archbishop of Vienna, Cardinal Migazzi, attacked them boldly. He wrote vigorously and defended the Church with energy. He was well supported by the Primate of Hungary, Count Joseph Batthy? °nyi, and in the lower provinces by the Cardinal Count von Frankenberg. But their efforts were in vain; the movement continued to grow." [Catholic Encyclopedia] Seemann 4487. Very good. minor shelfwear and scuffing, corners lightly bumped, very nice copy.
