Molendijk, Arie. 2016. Friedrich Max Müller and the Sacred Books of the East. Oxford University Press.
This volume offers a critical analysis of one the most ambitious editorial projects of late Victorian Britain: the edition of the fifty substantial volumes of the Sacred Books of the East (1879-1910). The series was edited and conceptualized by Friedrich Max Müller (1823-1900), a world-famous German-born philologist, orientalist, and religious scholar.
Arie L. Molendijk is the Professor of the History of Christianity and Philosophy, University of Groningen.
