John Neville Figgis CR (1866–1919) was an historian, political philosopher, and Anglican priest and monk of the Community of the Resurrection. Educated at Brighton College and St Catharine's College, Cambridge, 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 the 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. Some of the books which belonged to Neville Figgis form part of the Mirfield Collection which is housed in the University of York Special Collections.
