Max Müller

OverviewVersions

Description

Müller was a nineteenth century philologist. He was born in German-speaking Dessau in 1823, where he first studied, before moving to Leipzig University. It was here Müller began studying Sanskrit, something he continued and expanded by including the Vedic language, after moving to Berlin and then Paris, learning from leaders in this field. In further pursuit of his studies and research in these languages Müller moved to London in 1846. His research and publications saw him championed as a leader in Eastern Languages and the recipient of numerous honours. Müller has been described as the ‘founder of philology’ in England.
