Higgins, Godfrey

(1773-1833). Author of Anacalypsis: an Attempt to Draw Aside the Veil of the Saitic Isis (1863), a very scholarly 2-volume work highly regarded by Helena P. BLAVATSKY and frequently quoted by her. Born in Doncaster, England, Higgins was a Freemason and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. He is said to have served the “Chosen Chief” of the Order of Druids, succeeding William Blake in 1827 (Ross Nichols, Book of Druidry, 1990). Among his other works was Celtic Druids (1829) in which he traced the origins of the Druids to India.
