    Thanks for putting this together. I’m looking into Beethoven’s Masonic influences, and I’ve identified an upside down level he drew. Any chance you could tell me more about the source of no. 172?

      The medallion was made by a priest named A. J. Mathieu who was also the commander of the Leyssard National Guard. The amount of masonic imagery in combination with the upside-down triangle and the fact that Mathieu was a (former?)priest is why Karmin thinks it was specifically an anti-christian medallion.
