ACU The Supreme Being 2

The Festival of the Supreme Being

The Cult of the Supreme Being was a deist religion established by the Templar Maximilien de Robespierre during the French Revolution, intended to become France's state religion.

The Supreme Being was a deist god representing reason and virtue. According to Élise de la Serre, the cult's celebration of the republic and its citizens' duty towards it was a loose interpretation of Templar doctrine. On 8 June 1794, Robespierre hosted a festival honoring the Supreme Being at the Champ de Mars. Élise and Arno Dorian used the occasion to publicly discredit Robespierre, poisoning him with powdered ergot to make him appear insane and leaking lists of enemies that the revolutionary leader intended to execute.
