About Author

Ralph T. H. Griffith

Ralph Thomas Hotchkin Griffith (1826-1906) was a member of the Indian education service and one of the first Europeans to transcribe the Vedas into English. He lived in the United Kingdom (Oxford) and India (Benares and Nilgiris). Griffith was born on May 25, 1826, in Corsley, Wiltshire. He was a B.A. of Queen's College and was chosen Boden Professor of Sanskrit on November 24, 1849. He was the son of Reverend R. C. Griffith (Chaplain to the Marquess of Bath 1830). Lieutenant Colonel Joseph Boden contributed money to the university in 1832 to aid in the conversion of the people of India to Christianity, and the Boden Sanskrit professorship was created in 1832. Griffith pursued this goal by translating the Vedic scriptures into English. He also translated other Sanskrit works, including a verse version of the Ramayana and Kalidasa's Kumara Sambhava. He was the principal of Benares College in India and later settled in Kotagiri, Nilgiri.
