Doncaster 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.
