The Open Council are pleased to feature the Order of the Mopses.

The Order of the Mopses was a para-Masonic society founded by Roman Catholics. It is believed that it was founded in 1740 by Klemens August of Bavaria to bypass the papal bull Eminenti Apostolatus Specula of 1738.

The constitution of the Order of the Mopses allowed women to become members, as long as they were Catholic. The pug dog was chosen as a symbol of loyalty, trustworthiness and steadiness.
