MÜLLER, Friedrich Maximilian


MÜLLER, Friedrich Maximilian
(1823-1900)
   German philologist and orientalist who became professor at Oxford University and one of the founders of COMPARATIVE RELIGION. His many activities include translating and editing the g Veda (1849-1874, 6 Vols.) and writing many books on religious issues including his famous Essay on Comparative Mythology. He made a considerable impact on the development of oriental studies and almost single handedly created the SCIENCE of RELIGIONS.
