Inman was strongly influenced by the work of Godfrey Higgins, in particular his theories on the phallic elements of religion, and an interest in phallicism pervades his works, including his "Ancient Pagan and Modern Christian Symbolism", an exploration of the symbolic links between Christianity and the ancient cultures of India, the Middle East, and elsewhere.
