Franz von Miklosich
He devoted himself, however, to the study of Slavonic languages, abandoned the law, and obtained a post in the imperial library, where he remained from 1844 to 1862. In the former year he published a noteworthy review of Bopp's Comparative Grammar, and this began a long series of works of immense erudition which completely revolutionized the study of Slavonic languages.
In 1849 Miklošič was appointed to the newly created chair of Slavonic philology at the University of Vienna, and he occupied it until 1886. He became a member of the Academy of Vienna , which appointed him secretary of its historical and philosophical section, a member of the council of public instruction and of the upper house, and correspondent of the French Academy of Inscription. His numerous writings deal not only with the Slavic languages, but with Romanian, Albanian, Greek, and the language of the Roma and Sinti peoples.
