Abstract:

Rasmus Rask (1787-1832) was a Danish scholar who, having devoted the early
part of his career to the Old Norse and Anglo-Saxon languages and
literature, embarked upon a journey overland through Russia to India in
search of the cradle of the Indo-European languages. He was delighted to
rediscover the Avestan Zoroastrian texts preserved by the Parsis which
Anquetil du Perron had first reported on sixty years earlier, and further
Avestan materials, as well as a lively Zoroastrian community. On his
return, he published, first in Danish and then in this German translation
(1826), a thorough phonological and morphological analysis which showed
that, contrary to the opinion of Anquetil's opponents, the Avestan language
and its religious texts were neither a dim folk memory or a deliberate
coinage based on Sanskrit, but a very ancient language, originating in
Persia, and an important member of the Indo-European language family.
