Born on November 30, 1670, near Londonderry, Ireland; died March 11, 1722/3, near London, England. An industrious and independent writer upon religious matters he frequently became involved in disputes. His last work, Pantheisticon (a title derived mainly from two Greek words and meaning God is all and all is God), gave much offense to those who deemed it a presumptuous imitation of the forms for church worship. Whether there were really Such Societies of pantheists was also questioned (see John Poland, un Pretcurseur de la Franc-Maonnerie, Lantoine, Paris, 1927, which also contains copy of the Pantheisticon). Toland describes the meeting--actual or imaginary as it may have been--of a society where the mutual understanding of philosophy and morals is by question and answer.
