Thomas Bulfinch (1796-1867) was an American writer. He belonged to a well educated Bostonian merchant family of modest means. His father was Charles Bulfinch, the architect of the Massachusetts State House in Boston and parts of the U. S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.. Bulfinch supported himself through his position at the Merchants' Bank of Boston. Although Thomas Bulfinch reorganized Psalms to illustrate the history of the Hebrews, he is best known as the author of Bulfinch's Mythology, an 1881 compilation of his previous works: The Age of Fable; or, Stories of Gods and Heroes (1855), The Age of Chivalry; or, Legends of King Arthur (1858) and Legends of Charlemagne; or, Romance of the Middle Ages (1863).
