Who founded the Order of the Pug in 1740?

  • Clemens August of Bavaria:The Order of the Pug was founded as a way for people to circumvent the Papal Bull, a direct covenant that banned Roman Catholics from involving themselves with Freemason groups. The covenant was instilled by Pope Clement XII. It was a fraternal organization in Bavaria. Clemens August of Bavaria founded the Order of the Pug in 1740. Pope Clement XII believed the Order was a threat to the foundations of the Catholic religion. Therefore, the Order was a secret society because the punishment for Catholics who took part in Freemason groups was excommunication. August chose the pug as the symbol because it traditionally stood for trust, loyalty, and steadiness. The Order of the Pug differed from other Freemason groups in that it allowed Catholic females to become members. Source:
