Taxil Hoax

Taxil Hoax

As part of the practical joke that is now known as “The Taxil Hoax”, a Frenchman spent 12 years as a Roman Catholic writing anti-Masonic accounts, only to reveal that it was a prank on the Church. He said “...I thought I would kill myself laughing at some of the things proposed, but everything went; there is no limit to human stupidity.”
