Friedrich Max Müller (1823–1900) was one of the leading intellectuals of nineteenth-century Europe. He was a prolific author and was blessed with a long life and sturdy health. His particular specializations were on comparative linguistics, a subject, where he did pioneering work, as well as Indology, where he undertook the monumental task of editing a 50-volume set of English translations of Eastern religious texts.
