Doncaster News and Features: Famous Doncastrian: Godfrey Higgins

Sir Godfrey Higgins (January 30, 1772 in All Saints, Owston August 9, 1833), was an archaeologist, Freemason and Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, humanist, social reformer, and author of various now-esoteric and rare books.

After his death at Skellow Grange, he was remembered by his parish as a "political radical, reforming county magistrate and idiosyncratic historian of religions".

There are two basic themes which emerge from his great work Anacalypsis:

1 That there were ancient civilisations that had achieved superior religious knowledge, much of which has since been lost, and

2 That there is a universal basis to all religions.
