Fleury, Muratori és a Podmaniczkyak

Még néhány kapcsolat Fleury, Muratori és a Podmaniczkyak között.
FLEURY, CLAUDE névrokonát, (vagy rokonát?) FLEURY, ANDRE HERCULE DE kardinálist levelekkel bombázta Ramsay lovag, aki többek szerint a skót magasfokok kitalálója, hogy megváltoztassa annak rossz véleményét a szabadkőművességről:
" The second letter is dated March V, 1737, and is translated thus
I learn that the Assemblies of Freemasons displease your Excellency. I have never frequented them except with a view of spreading maxims which would render by degrees unbelief of ridiculous, vice odious, and ignorance shameful. I am persiuaded that if wise men of your Excelleney's choice were introduced to head these Assemblies, they would become very useful to religion, the State, and literature. Of this I hope to convince your Excellency if you will accord me a short interview at Issy. Awaiting that happy moment, I pray you to inform me whether I should return to these Assembliess, and I will conform to your Excellency's wishes with a boundless docility. But the Cardinal did not agree and he wrote on the margin of the letter in pencil the words, "Le roi ne le veut pas," meaning The King does not wish it."
Ugyancsak Mackey enciklopédiájában a skót rítus szövegeben előforduló piros betűs szövegek használatának magyarázatánál hivatkozik Muratorira:
"In the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, Edicts, Summonses or other documents, written or printed in red letters, are supposed to be of more binding obligation, and to require more implicit obedience, than any others. Hence, in the same Rite, to publish the name of one who has been expelled in red letters is considered an especial mark of disgrace. It is derived from the custom of the Middle Ages, when, as Muratori shows (Italian Medieval Antiquities) red letters were used to give greater weight to documents; and he quotes an old Charter of 1020, which is said to be confirmed per literas rubeas, or by red letters."
S Muratori neve kőművest jelent, s a Szimbolikus Nagypáholy Páholyháza (amely épp mostanában lényegül át szállodává) a Podmaniczky utca 45. alatt található.
