In a speech in the Reichstag in the lead up to the expulsion of the Jesuits from Germany in 1872, Chlodwig Karl Viktor, prince of Hohenlohe-Schillingsfurst, had remarked, "The Society of Jesus has taken upon itself to make war on the modern state, and its members declare with perfect openness that their purpose is to maintain the unity of ecclesiastical doctrine and ecclesiastical life in rigid connection with the Church as the center of their system." (4) Even that great Liberal British Prime Minister, William Ewart Gladstone, had denounced the Jesuits as the "deadliest foes that mental and moral liberty have ever known," and had by contrast praised Clement XIV, the pope who had suppressed them in 1773.
He had therefore cultivated a relationship with the amiable German ambassador in Paris, Prince Chlodwig zu Hohenlohe-Schillingsftirst.
