Vangjel Meksi (1770–1821) was an Albanian physician, writer, and translator. One-time personal physician to Ali Pasha, the 19th-century Albanian ruler of the Pashalik of Yanina, Meksi produced the first translation of the New Testament into Albanian with the help and sponsorship of the British and Foreign Bible Society (BFBS). Meksi did not live to see his work's publication however, which was supervised by Gregory IV of Athens. As a member of Filiki Etaireia, a secret society whose purpose was to establish an independent Greek state, Meksi joined the Greeks in the Siege of Tripolitsa during their war of independence against the Ottoman Empire and died shortly afterwards.

dbo:abstract
  • Vangjel Meksi (1770-1821) fue un médico, escritor, gramático y traductor albanés. Siendo médico personal de Alí, el gobernante albanés del pashalik de Yanina, Meksi produjo su primera traducción del Nuevo Testamento en albanés con la ayuda y patrocinio de la British and Foreign Bible Society. Meksi no vivió para ver la publicación de su obra; sin embargo, esta fue supervisada por Gregorio IV de Atenas. Como miembro de la Filikí Etería, una sociedad secreta cuyo propósito era crear un Estado griego independiente, Meksi se unió a los griegos en el asedio de Tripolizza durante su guerra de independencia contra el Imperio otomano y falleció poco tiempo después. Además de su aporte para los cristianos albaneses que pudieron leer por primera vez los evangelios en su propia lengua, la obra de Meksi avanzó en el estudio del albanés escrito y, en particular, siguió la labor de los lingüísticas y filólogos del siglo XIX, tales como Joseph Ritter von Xylander, August Schleicher y Johann Georg von Hahn. Sus estudios del idioma albanés fueron influenciados de manera significativa por la traducción de la Biblia de Meksi. (es)

As well as its value to Albanian Christians, who could for the first time read the Gospels in their own language, Meksi's work advanced the study of written Albanian, and in particular informed the work of 19th-century linguists and philologists such as Joseph Ritter von Xylander, August Schleicher, and Johann Georg von Hahn. Their studies of the Albanian language were significantly influenced by Meksi's Bible translation. (en)
