Godfrey Higgins
Godfrey Higgins was an English magistrate and landowner, a prominent advocate for social reform, historian, and antiquarian.
He is now known best for his writings concerning ancient myths, especially his book Anacalypsis, published posthumously, in which he asserts a commonality among various religious myths, which he traces back to the supposed lost religion of Atlantis.
He has been termed a "political radical, reforming county magistrate and idiosyncratic historian of religions" (Wiki)
