Multiplices inter was an address made by Pope Pius IX in 1865. In it he condemned Freemasonry and other secret societies and accused Masonic associations of conspiracy against the church, God and civil society. He further attributes revolutions and uprisings to Masonic activities, and denounces secret oaths, clandestine meetings and Masonic penalties.[1]
