Riassunto: British archaeologist and author SIR GODFREY HIGGINS (1772-1833) was rumored to be a Freemason and was even allegedly a Chosen Chief of the Order of Druids. If so, he undoubtedly drew on his arcane knowledge of the secret history of Western civilization to compose this impressive treatise.
Called by the author "an attempt to shew, that the Druids were the priests of Oriental colonies who emigrated from India" and also that they were "the builders of Stonehenge, of Carnac, and of other Cyclopean works, in Asia and in Europe," this delightful example of 19th-century esoterica explores the similarities between Irish and Hebrew letters, wonders whether Virgil was a Druid, examines the "surprising ignorance of the Greeks," details the Druid origin of Christmas celebrations, and much more, including detailed looks at Stonehenge, New Grange, the Fire Towers of Scotland, and other sacred ancient places--complete with the beautiful original engravings.
First published in three parts between 1827 and 1829 and presented here in a replica of the original editions, this hard-to-find volume belongs in the library of anyone fascinated by the deep mysteries of old Europe.
