Higgins' own death, on 9 August , resulted from an illness which he suffered while attending a meeting of The British Association for the Advancement of Science at Cambridge. Higgins' own writings, especially Anacalypsis, were later to have a major influence on the development of Theosophy , through the publications of Helena Blavatsky.

This had given its system of spirituality and philosophy to the ancient Indians, Chaldeans, Hebrews, Egyptians, and Druids alike, based on a veneration of the sun with a threefold personification of deity and a myth of a saviour god who dies and then returns. Higgins identified this nation with the drowned land of Atlantis, hitherto regarded as a myth in itself. This device not only dealt with the question of why no objective evidence of the ancestral civilization remained, but effectively turned the Atlanteans into a blank sheet upon which an ideal religion could be delineated, composed of the writer's favourite aspects of those known to history.

In Higgins's scheme, the ancient knowledge had been hopelessly corrupted by the Christian churches, and needed now to be reconstructed. Higgins recommended the Sabbath remain a festival instead of a "gloomy" fast. The Celtic Druids, published in and as three parts, was intended as a precursor to Anacalypsis.

The Celtic Druids was "an attempt to show that the druids were the priests of oriental colonies who emigrated from India , were the introducers of the First or Cadmean System of Letters , and the builders of Stonehenge , Carnac , and other Cyclopean works in Asia and Europe.

Content[ edit ] The work is the product of more than twenty years of research during which Higgins tried to uncover "a most ancient and universal religion from which all later creeds and doctrines sprang. The book itself details many of Higgins' beliefs and observations about the development of religion.

Among these was his theory that a secret religious order, which he labeled "Pandeism" from Pans- or Pandu- referring to a family of Gods, appending with -ism , had continued from ancient times to the present day, stretching at least from Greece to India, and possibly having once covered the entire world.

About this product

Among the many theories presented in this book is that both the Celtic Druids and the Jews originated in India — and that the name of the Biblical Abraham is really a variation of the word Brahma , created by shifting the last letter to the beginning: Abrahma.

Higgins used the term "Pandeism" to describe the religious society that he purported had existed from ancient times, and at one time had been known throughout the entire world.

Higgins believed this practice continued in secret until the time of his writing, in the s in an area stretching from Greece to India. While pantheism normally refers to one universal god, the Pandeism described by Higgins, refers to the worship of a family, a union, or a pantheon of gods which are collectively universal.

Higgins was a follower of John Toland ; although Toland had lived in an era when "deism" and "theism" were interchangeable, Higgins wrote during the s and s, a period several generations later when deism was popular and became distinct from theism.

For this opinion I cannot see a shadow of foundation.

Theodore at Munich—to a church and to the Cathedral at Augsburg, where a black virgin and child as large as life—to Rome and the Borghese chapel of Maria Maggiore—to the Pantheon—to a small chapel of St. Peters on the right hand side on entering, near the door; and in fact, to almost innumerable other churches in countries professing the Romish religion.

They remained as they were first When I consider all the circumstances detailed above respecting the Pans, I cannot help believing that, under the mythos, a doctrine or history of a sect is concealed. At the same time, I beg to be understood as not denying that there was such a kingdom as that of Pandae, the daughter of Cristna , any more than I would deny that there was a Kingdom of France ruled by the eldest son of the church, or the eldest son of the Pope.

I of 'Anacalypsis': I think it right to warn my reader, that there are more passages than one in the book, which are of that nature, which will be perfectly understood by my Masonic friends, but which my engagements prevent me explaining to the world at large.

We have found the Black complexion or something relating to it whenever we have approached the origin of nations. My Masonic friends will find their craft very often referred to. This led me to extend my inquiry into the origin of all religions, and this again led to an enquiry into the origin of nations and languages; and ultimately I came to a resolution to devote six hours a day to this pursuit for ten years.
