In the early 1744, the so called Confraternity of the Star Cross was revealed in Brno. Its members were subjected to interrogations and imprisoned for various periods. An extensive surviving material on the case enables analyses into the individual actors‘ opinions (i.e. the fraternity members, the officials, lawyers, the queen and the church representatives) and a chan of the Star Cross ce to meditate on interpretations of this phenomenon, which mingled magical elements, alchemy, a desire to understand the secret of the nature, Christian rituals as well as certain „all-remedial“ ideas. In this article, I attempt to place this issue within the context of historical-sociological research on rationalization, disenchantment and secularization and show applicability of the given terms in similar research.
