An exam’n. of a most sensational hoax perpetrated by Parisian journalist Leo Taxil. He & his fictitious assoc., Diana Vaughan, created a scandal in the late 1800s by reporting on a heinous occult sect, the “Palladian Masons,” who performed diabolic acts of “Luciferan Spiritism.” Taxil’s “revelation” of this secret soc. & its supposed links to Freemasonary & other occult org. created a public hysteria & outcry against all things occult, esp. secret soc. This book is Waite’s response, his satirical interpretation of this sensationalization & persecution of occult groups in France at that time. This repub. of this rare Waite book includes a unpub. sequel, “Diana Vaughan & the Question of Modern Palladism,” in which he recounts the sordid affair in a straightforward manner.
