The Order of the Pug and the Age of Enlightenment
In the late seventeenth century, Europe was in the throes of the Age of Enlightenment. The new ideas of rationalism contributed to the overthrow of an English King, the creation of modern Freemasonry, and a Papal Bull that all represented a massive shift in the thinking of early-modern Europe. The History Guy recalls the forgotten history of the Order of the Pug.
