PEIPER, Carl Rudolph Samuel.

PEIPER, Carl Rudolph Samuel. Striegau 20.1.1790 — 23.5.1879. German Priest interested in Sanskrit. Studied theology and Oriental Philology (Arabic). Ph.D. 1823. Soon after studies he got the vicarage of Hirschberg in Thüringen and worked there for fifty years. He was married and his son was the classical philologist Rudolf P. (1834–98). Himself, he seems to have devoted his free time to classical, Oriental and modern languages, but of his interest in Sanskrit came out only one translation.
