About the Author:

"John Neville Figgis (1866 - 1919) was a historian, political philosopher and monk. Educated at Brighton College, he was a student of Lord Acton at Cambridge, and editor of much of Acton's work.

He is remembered in relation to the history of ideas, and concepts of pluralist state. The latter he in some ways adapted from Otto von Gierke; his ideas were picked up by others, such as G. D. H. Cole and Harold Laski.

He entered the Community of the Resurrection at Mirfield in 1896." (Quote from wikipedia.org)
