From the earliest times historically attainable to the sixteenth century AD, the peoples and tribes who decisively influenced the political fortunes of India invaded from the north-west. From there, the Aryan conquerors first subjugated the northern areas and then pushed further east until the Aryan empires stretched from Afghanistan to Bengal. Their priests and spiritual leaders, the Brahmins, formed a culture that spread to all parts of the Indian continent, and in northern India, Aryan languages were gradually supplanting those originally spoken by the indigenous population. In the south, the Dravidian languages still hold their ground to this day, but the Aryan high-level language, Sanskrit, was also used there in a variety of ways in science and literature. The various tribes of Central Asian origin, Sakas, Yueh Chi, Huns and others, who invaded India after the Aryans were established, also bowed to the superiority of the Aryan culture of their new homeland.

This chapter is part of the Springer Book Archives digitization project with publications that have appeared since the publisher's inception in 1842. With this archive, the publisher provides sources for both historical and disciplinary research, which must be viewed in a historical context. This chapter is from a book that was published before 1945 and is therefore not advertised by the publisher in its political-ideological orientation typical of the time.
