F. Max Müller (1823-1900) was a German scholar of comparative language, religion, and mythology. Müller's special areas of interest were Sanskrit philology and the religions of India. Müller was instrumental in editing and translating into English some of the most ancient and revered religious and philosophical texts of Asia. Born in Dessau, duchy of Anhalt [Germany], he moved to England in 1846 and settled in Oxford in 1848, where he became deputy professor of modern languages in 1850. He was appointed professor of comparative philology in 1868 and retired in 1875.
