Child actress Jane Withers has a small part as a classmate of Peola, her fifth movie appearance.
Baron von Knigge is initiated into the Order. He subsequently restructured the Order and recruited many prominent members: Congress of Wilhelmsbad convened. Probably the most significant event of the era as far as any official coalition between secret society factions: It is not therefore surprising that the most heterogeneous opinions were expressed.
What passed at this terrible Congress will never be known to the outside world, for even those men who had been drawn unwittingly into the movement, and now heard for the first time the real designs of the leaders, were under oath to reveal nothing. I can only tell you that all this is very much more serious than you think.
The conspiracy which is being woven is so well thought out that it will be, so to speak, impossible for the monarchy and the Church to escape from it.
Baron von Knigge resigns from the Illuminati. His quarrels with Weishaupt over the direction and management of the Order had reached a boiling point. A certain amount of jealousy was apparent from both parties — though Weishaupt certainly was a Machiavellian, by all accounts.
On July 1st Knigge signs a formal agreement to return all property, rituals and initiations belonging to the Order, and to maintain silence about Illuminati secrets. The Elector of Bavaria, Duke Carl Theodore, issues the first edict against secret societies not authorized by the law or the sovereign.
This first edict seems to have been brought upon by ex-member, Professor Joseph Utzschneider, who had quit the Order in August The Duchess was thoroughly alarmed and passed it on to the Duke.
Some members of the Illuminati appeal to Carl Theodore for an appearance before him to prove their innocence.
The offer is rejected. The Bavarian Monarch issues the second edict against secret societies, specifically naming the Illuminati and Freemasonry; shortly after a considerable amount of important documents were concealed or put to the flames. Subsequent government measures were taken and some members made formal confessions.
A considerable membership was found to be held within the military; officers and soldiers were ordered to come forward and confess any involvement.
State officials, professors, teachers, and students who were found out to be members were summarily dismissed. Some were even banished from the country. The Superiors aim at procuring from their inferiors diplomatic acts, documents, and original writings.
With pleasure they see them commit any treasons or treacherous acts, because they not only turn the secrets betrayed to their own advantage, but thereby have it in their power to keep the traitors in a perpetual dread, lest, if they every showed any signs of stubbornness, their malefactions should be made known.
The welfare of the Order will be a justification for calumnies, poisonings, assassinations, perjuries, treasons, rebellions; in short, for all that the prejudices of men lead them to call crimes. Honor, life, and fortune, all are to be sacrificed to the Superiors. The governors of nations are despots when they are not directed by us.
They also boast that they are in possession of the secret of opening and reclosing letters without the circumstance being perceived. How would it be possible to devise one single system of morals and one common Government for all Europe, and what means should be employed to effectuate it?
Would the Christian Religion be a necessary requisite? Should revolt be employed to accomplish it? We clearly saw that a Prince knowing his own interests, and wholly attending to the paternal care of his subjects, would never countenance a Sect, spreading through almost every province under the cloak of Free-masonry; because it sows division and discord between parents and their children, between Princes and their subjects, and among the most sincere friends; because on all important occasions it would install partiality on the seats of justice and in the councils, as it always prefers the welfare of the Order to that of the state, and the interests of its adepts to those of the prophane.The Secret Test of Character trope as used in popular culture.
